Freeke Kunst and the MeesterKunst Foundation

Freeke Kunst was a co-founder of our firm, enriching us with her experience, knowledge, creativity, and laughter. Far beyond the borders of the Dutch Caribbean, Freeke was known for her expertise on maritime law. Freeke was a dedicated counsel to her clients. She held several positions in maritime committees, was a regular speaker at conferences and was lecturer at the University of Curaçao. Freeke was also an art collector, sculptor, painter and loved to travel with family and friends. But most of all Freeke was a true companion to the people that were dear to her.

On 12 February 2017 our friend and partner Freeke passed. Five years later, in February 2022, OX & WOLF founded the MeesterKunst Foundation (Stichting MeesterKunst) in memory of Freeke. This foundation focusses on supporting female artists in Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao.
