August Duurvoort

   I was born in Indonesia and spent my youth surrounded by the tropical beauty of the Javanese scenery.  After moving to the Netherlands I attended the Academy of Visual Arts in the Hague Holland.  In the 1960′s I moved to the US and settled in Northern California working as a photographer and commercial artist.  I now live in the Santa Cruz area and in awe at the beauty of our coastal scenery.  I am using my Dutch contemporary style of painting to express the grandeur and beauty we are so fortunately surrounded with and this is my way to share it.
