Asyla ten Holt, a 66 turned native from Curacao-the Dutch Antilles, is a female soul artist that fully creates in Fine Arts/Photography Textile/Installation and Craft next to Writing and Healing. Coming back from Holland in 1981, a fascination grew to sketch every corner of the ABC islands and taste back her Culture. Through her constant being spotted at sites, the name ‘ E mucha ku ta pinta’ was born. This in native Papiamentu meant for ‘the girl that paints’.
Arts: During her 15 years of stay in Holland, Asyla’s last study in 1979 was attending classes at the Visual Art Academy in Eindhoven. She would occasionally return for more diverse studies during 80’s and 90’s included Healing centers like Touch for Health when back to Antilles. An ultimate Conceptual study was in 1999 to 2000 in Tilburg Holland with Dutch Scholarship. While in the Caribbean, Asyla went to Art Student League-’85 with American society Funds during her years coaching Art Programs in Bonaire and Curacao. During ’80s and ’90s the activities were Art fairs and Exhibits in the Antilles also in Holland and Germany. After the millennium Asyla had specific interest for healing therapies and functioned as body work therapist plus offered an Art teacher posision at the Private American-Curacao Preparatory school –‘01 until ‘04. While on the practise, the creative method from Still life grew to Surrealistic onto mix media and recycling to self-designing Monographs and Installation.
Creative Writing: Gradually the narrative part grew parallel to the Arts and from rhythmic Poetry the interest turned to Prose writing, researching her surrounding and globally to rehearse and incorporate the healing part. Her messages became long lines metaphoric in style with humoristic approach. 40 years in a span as a Creative and now a senior meant not quitting but continuing as an Asyla Holt. Her daily importance is working on awareness projects (http://www.facebook.com/aseeltje) and exchange in In-residence with Arts Cultural topics (http://www.facebook.com/asyltje and http://www.facebook.com/in-the-blue/). Ghana and Surinam are first sites from where Essays came forth to compare illustrating researches on social, traditional and Arts Writing. This customary characteristic dynanism of hers is found from the time being a founder of Funark in ‘89, a nonprofit foundation where Asyla interviewed Artists and coaching groups to help lift up in society in proceeding Arts- Culture. And since her trips to Barbados Gift and Craft shows from ’05 to ‘08, the benefitting part to a new style approach arose with Textile designing and Monographs. These including Ghana’s batik technique which came years later. This also meant discovery of the diaspora and encouragement of narrative to change and attending the Renaissances’ Creative Writing style with Callaloo studies in 2012 in Rhode Islands proceeded. Her inner instinct evolved into Arts/Prose and healing subjects and merged together with designed Installation. Other activities are stretching, reading, writing, music and blogging while her Projects are to be realized with Funds.
