|Art of Ingrid Kamerbeek and WEBISM Group Artists
Ingrid Kamerbeek is a Waldkirchen-based artist working together with her artist friends and colleagues all around the globe for peace and global understanding. Dr. Chang discovered her image "He is Gone" which she created in 2001 after the early death of her most beloved Beatle George Harrison. Dr. Chang asked for permission to exhibit this artwork in the real life art show at the EHCC Museum of Big Island Hawaii. That was the beginning of a worldwide teamwork and led to the "Webism Group of Worldwide Artists".
Pygoya about Ingrid Kamerbeek:
"Born in 1952 in Gummersbach, Germany. Currently lives in the romantic area of Bavaria. The beautiful landscape not only attracts many foreign tourists worldwide but also provides inspiration for Kamerbeek's art.
After high school the artist embarked on a very special education in graphic arts through tutelage and apprenticeship with her grandfather and father, two previous family generations of professional painters.
Kamerbeek owned galleries in Kaarst near Düsseldorf (1978 - 1980) and in Mönchengladbach (1980 - 1982) before creating her own web site which assists other cyberartists to gain exposure for their work. A true inspirational leader and motivator for the cyberarts.
Much art exhibiting, on earth and in cyberspace. One of her works, "Global Consciousness", was inducted recently into the online Cyberculture Art Museum.
The artist finds time to maintain the position of Co-coordinator for East Hawaii Cultural Center's International Cyberart World Tour and Coordinator of CenterofCyberspace.com".

|I am a third generation artist. I was born into art. It's like breathing to me. I do oils, pastels, acrylics, etc. - all that traditional stuff. In 1999 I discovered the computer as art tool and made that amazing new tool one of my many different working materials. I love to work "Mixed Media" and to experiment and enjoy working on- and offline with the amazing artists of the "Webism Group of Worldwide Artists". This group has artists from all fields of art. It is a wonderful community working together not only for art but also for peace and understanding worldwide.
