Born and raised in Arnhem, the Netherlands, I've lived in the USA since 2003.
In the Netherlands I went to the "Akademie voor Beeldende Kunst" (Art School) in Arnhem and graduated from the "Grafisch Lyceum" (Graphic Design) in Utrecht.
I expresses myself in painting (oils, acrylics and encaustic) and sometimes photography (black & white and color).
Nature's organic shapes,
Architect Antonio Gaudi and other Spanish artists like Dali and Picasso,
French impressionist Monet (Water Lilies !),
And of course the Dutch artists Vincent van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt, Jan Toorop and
Favorite art and design styles:
Art Nouveau (Jugendstil),

Where do you wander?
Makes me ponder
All directions or none at all
Never mind my mind
Just let go
O, aching heart
Joyous, loving thing
Give into the passion
Water should flow
Banging on rocks
Straight from the core"
