About me

After working in business for almost 30 years, I rediscovered my passion for making art. 

I mainly work in 2D (paintings, drawings and photography), but sometimes a theme or subject asks for more dimensions. The materials I like to work with are acrylic paint, ink, (colored) pencils, charcoal and markers. Since my childhood I have a fascination with color, structures and patterns and you often see them in my work. My subjects range from portraits to landscapes, in various stages of stylization and abstraction.

I am inspired by chance, happy accidents, my walks, nature and the materials I work with. Artists who appeal to me include Gustav Klimt and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
