I was always pretty creative and have had a very vivid imagination. My career went from left to right and I was never quite sure what I liked doing. In 2013 I started a
painting course and I was absolutely thrilled. The teacher told me to take painting more seriously and so I did. I took a big step and assigned to the Wackers Academy in Amsterdam,
where I graduated 12th of May 2020 midst in the Corona Lock down. A difficult and challenging time.
After all the painting skills I learned at the Wackers Academy I hope to keep developing and follow my interest in the combination of graphical concept versus figurative
image. I love colour, patterns, facial expressions. I like the viewer to wonder what is going on in a painting, what is a person thinking? I hope to reach people through
my art. I think emotion is the key. Even if it is only by the beauty of form and colour.
Next to painting I am married to an extraordinary kind and wonderful man, I have two beautiful and challenging teenagers, I exhibit regularly in the region and I work two days a week at
an art shop.
