Claudia de Vos (1964), artist and scent psychologist from the Netherlands.
After finishing art school (HKU) in '89 I have been working as an artist.
Around 2000 I added a new dimension to my work. Through the years I have developed an interest in the senses and – more specific – the olfactory sense: scents, odors, aromas.
In order to establish a firmer knowledge base concerning the functioning and effects of scents I followed a professional study on aromatherapy and the psychology and psychoanalytic ideas of C.G. Jung
The psychodynamics and the symbolism of scent have an important place in my work.
My olfactory art is one of the outputs on scent awareness. These works are objects where I combine art and scent: olfactory art.
I am a member of the 'Gooise Kunst Kring' (Art Society Gooi)
