Although van Dapperens’ main focus lies with painting, she likes to initiate and/or cooperate in art projects in another form. These art projects have a mixed character. They offer an opportunity to her to cooperate with other artists and use other art forms. Besides being a contemporary art painter, Hester van Dapperen has a history as fashion designer, foto stylist and illustrator of books and magazines. In some of these projects you can see the influences of that history. They also function as general development and show the experimental character of the artist. This section offers an overview of some of the projects she worked on the last couple of years.
