Chris Stoffel Overvoorde Prof.E.
Process was important to Chris Stoffel Overvoorde and was the foundation of all his work. The discipline of skill is essential and for the artist painting started with drawing. Our POP-UP feature of Stoffel Overvoorde’s work, which was planned with Chris, begins with preliminary drawings and follows through to finished paintings.
It is with sadness that we report the passing of Chris Stoffel Overvoorde, who loved to paint our Canadian clouds. An art professor at Calvin College (Michigan) since the 1960s, he found the Canadian landscape in the early 1990s and continued to draw, design and paint here into his 80s. His major interest remained space and atmosphere.
