Originally from The Netherlands, Fenneke changed her career as financial planner after emigrating to Scotland. She did several short courses and workshops at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, Edinburgh Printmakers and with established artists. She now works from her home studio in Aberdeenshire. She investigates the versatility of paper through printmaking, paper sculpture and artists’ books, inspired by natural and geometrical patterns found while sea kayaking, mountaineering or travelling.
Her prints and artists’ books have been shown in national and international exhibitions such as North East Open Studios, Aberdeen Art Gallery, University Aberdeen, Bankside Gallery in London, the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh, various libraries in Denver and at Salmon Falls gallery in Massachusetts, USA.
Fenneke received the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award by Creative Scotland in 2018 for a 2-week non-toxic printmaking residency in the USA. In 2023, one of her artists’ book collections was shortlisted for the Scottish Landscape Awards and exhibited at City Art Centre in Edinburgh. Various works are held in private and public collections.
