I was born in the province of Zeeland
(The Netherlands) in 1951.
I drew a lot when I was young, but I decided to start painting relatively
late in life. In 1995 I graduated the Wackers Art School in Amsterdam.
Painting and drawing from observation has my preference, in which
the light and the ambience are of the upmost importance.
I prefer making portraits, but also landcapes and seascapes captivate
me. Sometimes I work on assignments, e.g. painting portraits.
I work rather quick and sketchy. You can see the result in my flamenco
I use various techniques, but sketching musicians
when they perform has my preference.
