YOUR IDEA on paper, canvas, wood or metal

My passion is making custom art for you; I like to capture everything on paper or canvas that has a personal story to it. This can be a portrait of a loved one, a painting of your beloved pet, but also a pen&ink sketch or metalart painting of your company, your house or your favorite car.
From classic portraitpainting to modern metal art.

Portrait Artist Carroline van Dijk

Welcome to my website, where I look forward to introducing you to my work as an international portrait painter. On this site you can find examples of my work and can view the variety of possibilities that I can offer. And interested in a drawing or painting, based on your photo or idea, you will find all information needed to request an artwork created by me. Still some questions? You can forward me directly your request or question to or feel free to call me at 0031-(0)6-41463051. You are also welcome to drop by the studio (in the Netherlands), to discuss your request in person.

Perhaps I can create an artwork for you too? I look forward to hearing from you.

company art


I had the opportunity to create a canvas for GBI Transport located in Hoogvliet. Their wishes were to have an anniversary gift created for the owner of ‘Van Donge en de Roo’ located in Rotterdam. The canvas included their office building, a portrait of the owner Ron de Roo and a containership. Together with Gerard and his wife Liliane (from GBI Transport) we were also able to find a beautiful coordinating frame, that my husband competently made. The frame provided a strong, luxurious and even elegant classic touch to the overall piece. Thank you Gerard and Liliane for your trust.
