My works are images of distilled memory, emotion, dreams and belonging. Journal pages… Poetry, not prose.
I am free of belonging to a group or a style or a school, whatever comes up has become a different shape in the square of the canvas. The Freedom not to know what I come up with makes it all the more interesting. Painting is my road from the world around me to the unknown and my way out…
Born in 1965 in The Netherlands into an artistic family. Both my mom & dad where artists but it was my blind brother that got my first interest in what one can’t see.
Mostly self taught but with guidance and inspiration from artists whilst I lived & exhibited in Groningen, NewYork, Berlin, Portugal, Ireland, Germany, Hungary & Amsterdam, I have been painting ever since I decided I wanted to be an artist and make play my profession.
I am in love with light, I am in love with color & most of the time I’m at home as a painter.
At the moment I live & work in Kwadijk in The Netherlands
