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. Later she started working with glass and polyester too, recently with stainless steel.
