Dykmans, Anne

Anne Dykmans was born in Verviers, Belgium, in 1952. She is a graduate of l’École Nationale d’Architecture et des Arts Visuels de La Cambre in Brussels, where she studied printmaking. Specialist of the Mezzotint (mezzotinto) technique, she is especially known for her prints of interior scenes, where light and dark come together in amazing chiaroscuro effects. She has presented her work in solo and group shows in Belgium and in many countries including; among others: France, Germany, Spain, Canada, Japan, China, and the USA. She was awarded in 1983 the Prix de la Jeune Gravure Belge in Antwerp. In 1986 she received the Prize of the 8th Biennale of Engraving of Fredrikstad, Norway. She won in 1988 the Gold Medal at the 2nd Triennial of Mezzotint Engraving of Sopot, Poland. Her prints are included in many private and public collections around the world.

Anne Dykmans taught engraving from 1984 to 2017 at the Constantin Meunier Academy of Etterbeek and at the School of Arts of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre. Retired from public teaching, she now lives and works in her studio in Brussels.
