Ermine Poort has started her career as a painter on a mountain in Ibiza. In 1991 she enrolled in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, from which she graduated in 1995. She took classes from a. o. Jim Dine and Nan Goldin at the Salzburg Summer Academy. In 2001 She was asked to be a board member at Pulchri Studio, The Hague.

In December 2001 Ermine Poort opened her own Galerieatelier in The Hague. There she has taken up promoting her work, including portraits on commission. At the same time it's her studio.

Newsflash: 1 november 2004 ermine moved her gelerieatelier to Wassenaar, open by appointment.

For her portraits, Ermine Poort works mainly from photographs, preferably taken by herself. The portraits are not classical in the true sense of the word; they have a distinct 'ermine-style' about them: Powerful, clear and colourful. They are contemporary portraits with a timeless quality.

Her main objective is to translate the essence of the person portrayed onto the canvas.
