Raised by parents with a passion for the old masters, Hermine de Groeve’s love for art started on her mother’s knee. Today she runs art gallery S&H De Buck in Gent together with jewellery designer, silver smith and husband Siegfried De Buck. “Art has always been a part of my life,” De Groeve enthuses. Along with meeting her husband, she was introduced to contemporary art. “My husband has always been a lover of contemporary art and architecture. He creates contemporary jewellery and unique pieces, permanently present at the gallery. I admire people who are creators.”
