Since 1991 I do have exhibitions of my paintings in several galleries in The Netherlands. I paint people in their daily life. My studio is situated on a canal in Amsterdam and the surroundings give me the inspiration to paint. I simply love to walk in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. I love its little cafés, the sidewalk cafés, the Grand Cafés. I love it in the summer, I love it when it is raining or when their is snow.
I make sketches on the spot and work them out later in my studio. I want to catch the moment. Besides scenes in Amsterdam, I also paint children on the beach or other landscapes with people in it. You can see more of it on my website www.maliebaehr.com
