Eddy Baetens was born on January 2nd, 1948 in Rijswijk, The Netherlands. Since his youth he was fascinated with nature and the relation between man and nature.This fascination for nature had a great impact on his further development. After studying social geography at the University of Nijmegen, he settled in Curaçao in 1974, where he developed his skills as an artist. Very often he is inspired by what nature has to offer in materials. Especially the characteristics of wood forms inspire and develop him to sculpture his own world. The choice Eddy makes in the relation man-nature is very often the one of the human body. Besides wood he sculptures in stone, particular in Curaçao limestone to the forms of human body he likes to express.
