I am a fine art artist from the Netherlands. I love to paint faces and am very drawn to the eyes.. I paint portraits since I graduated art school in 1990 in the Netherlands at the Akademie voor beeldende vorming Tilburg. I live and work in Alphen a/d Rijn the Netherlands.
Themes such as texture, skin, depth, and stillness, realism-abstract are reflected in my paintings. I paint on canvas, stone and wood.
A lot of the paintings I do are done in commission. It is important for me to learn more about the person I am portraying. Ideally, I meet people in their own environment and take photos too. If people have more time I like to make sketches first. I search for something unique in the person, something that touches and inspires me to paint. The resemblance is very important to me.
I am represented by Morren Galleries /De portretwinkel Utrecht and Portret in opdracht Amsterdam.
