About me

I am a Dutch figurative painter. (Academie Voor Beeldende Vorming Tilburg 1990)
My subjects are universes in themselves, frequent themes are friendship, (humans or
animals) the warm inviting texture of spaces, and the strong female. In my paintings I search
for the translation in paint between the experience and the visible. The way i paint is very
intuitive often studying realism and abstraction, How much does the painting need of both?
An overly detailed painting gets boring and too much abstraction is not specific enough for
me. Many paintings are painted over but I just love the painter’s journey!
