Odile was born in 1945 in the Belgian province of Limburg and pursued studies in plastic arts at the Academy of Genk.
She expressed her passion for literature as a secondary school language teacher. And that sensitivity for poetry would further blossom in sculpted art. Odile Kinart has been profoundly inspired by the African art and Pre-Columbian cultures. This Flemish artist became known for her ceramic pieces. Since 1995, the sculptress has favored bronze. She has recently started working with glass and polyester too.
