Minden Ten Eyck is a photographer and abstract acrylic artist based out of Austin, Texas. She has been painting abstracts for over 10 years. Inspired by natural forms, processes and materials, her most recent paintings incorporate three-dimensional texture and metallic pigments. Minden takes an intuitive, spontaneous and visceral approach to her work. She is inspired by the way abstract art allows her to convey herself instinctively and how it also expresses the seemingly incommunicable. In addition to painting, Minden loves black and white photography and has been photographing Austin and the surrounding area since she moved to Austin in 2013. She enjoys creating with others and teaches after school art classes with elementary and middle school students. Her paintings and photography have been featured at galleries in Denver and Austin. Minden has also donated paintings, photography and digital art for fundraising by Austin Community College, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum and Ladysmiths of ATX.
