Nico Vrielink was born in 1958 in Reusel in the south part of the Netherlands. Vrielink was educated at an Academie of Art in Belgium to become a teacher. But teaching wasn't Vrielink's cup of tea and since 1984 he has been working as an artist. A year later, in 1985 Nico met his wife Jeane in Singapore. It was love at first sight and since the day Nico Vrielink started painting her he never stopped doing so. Nico had made more than 4000 paintings of Jeane. If there is just one artist whose work can be linked to a muse, Nico Vrielink is far the most outstanding candidate. All over the world, the thousands of portraits Nico Vrielink has painted of his muse illuminate many hundreds of private homes, institutions, galleries and museums. Her name is Jeane Seah and for decades she has been the love of Nico Vrielink's life, his source of inspiration, his companion, shining light, lover, wife and guide. Throughout the years Nico Vrielink, a great natural talent, has proven his ability in one-subject paintings, with and through Jeane. Nico Vrielink's themes are inspired by the rock-solid impact of her immense spiritual strength.
