Hiske Tas Bain, was born in The Hague, Holland

After finishing her formal education in The Hague, she
went on to attend Art School, first in De Haagse Academie
voor Beeldende Kunst, then later De Haagse Vrije
Academie and then to London UK where she went on to study in The Regent College of Art.

Being inspired by such art styles as Surrealism, Dadaism, Magic realism, and stimulated by people in society, Culture, Music and Art, traveling became one of Hiske’s passions. She has journeyed and lived and studied extensively throughout Europe and Asia. After having lived in Paris, London, New York, and Antwerp, she took up residence in Australia where she now lives and has her studio on the North Coast. 

Hiske’s studies and fascination with the Indigenous culture, along with the stimulating wonders of nature and the magic of its vastness led her to the tribal women in the desert of Ernabella in the Northern Territory, Australia. She worked and lived amongst the women there as a Natural Therapist and as an artist.They shared knowledge of each other’s crafts and culture. The Desert inspired her to do many paintings there

Hiske having been involved as an initiate into the societies of the Australian Indigenous, American Indian, and Polynesian Kahuna Shamanism has led her to work as a healer and teacher all over the world.
