Esther Loopstra is an artist, educator, and mentor whose work is an extension of her perpetual curiosity. Her art has been shown in galleries, used for print ads, editorials, books, stationery products, textiles, and more. An explorer by nature, Esther is passionate about innovation, intuition, and the neuroscience of creative living. She’s taught at Kent State University and Cornish College of the Arts and is now a public speaker & a coach. She offers one-on-sessions and facilitates workshops for individuals and businesses who want to use their own creative flow to create AMAZING things in the world.
Loopstra’s work takes the viewer on a passage of discovery by weaving through pathways and portals into known and unknown spaces. Cued by nature, her use of light, dark, texture, and line creates a provocative tension. She evokes the brightness of life and the beauty of its dark mystery.
A passionate and curious explorer, Loopstra is influenced by her travels, ideas of science, nature, consciousness, mysticism, and meaning. Her work references both a micro and macro view of the universe by unearthing how the material world resonates with and reflects our ineffable nature.
Through an intuitive process, Loopstra’s paintings unfold like a journey. She flows with her instincts, developing layers, working back into them allowing her paintings to change and grow along the way. Each piece evolves in its own time and finds its unique voice. Her technique is a celebration of the ever-changing process that is life itself.
