Welcome to my About page. Here you can read a bit about me and my art.
Nature is my great inspiration, not only its beauty but also its fragility and finality. To find inspiration I love to stroll through the Amsterdam Forest which is quite close to where I live. During my walks I take lots of pictures and if I can I take some of my found treasures home.
Right now my art is about sharing the connection I feel with nature, its beauty and the overwhelming force that nature, or life, truely is. If you want to know more about my inspiration and the art supplies I use please click the links below or in this paragraph.
In 1999 I graduated at the Amsterdam School of Arts, Academy of Fine Arts in Education, now called Breitner Academy. In 2001 I joined graphical studio Grafisch Collectief Thoets. A studio specialized in techniques like etching, lithography and silkscreen. I left the studio when they had to move in December 2020. Now I create all my art from my home studio. From 2004 to 2018 I exhibited my art at Art Amsterdam Spui.
