Title: Cristal de roche

De Bruyne was born in Brussels, Belgium and currently resides in Rome, Italy where she studied at the Academy of Nice Arts. Her portraiture is very well appreciated. Her paintings can be found in Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia, and she has completed a commission from the Saudi Royal Family. De Bruyne has seven times been honored with first prize and has also been awarded the honor of Ambassador of European Culture, holding the title of Florentine Knight of Culture and Academician.
In her oil paintings, De Bruyne uniquely combines portraiture with the exquisite detail of minerals and gemstones. She tunes her instincts of expression into her medium to create metaphysical imagery. This allows the characters arising from the crystalline texture of mineral, be it emerald, amethyst or natrlyte, to achieve a quality rarely seen.
