Passion for paint

I express my creativity through painting and decoration. I am inspired by everything around me, whether it is a centuries old tale, a ballet, a beautiful environment or just an object. Beautiful shapes move me and inspire me. Expression, excitement and colour are characteristics of my work.

I paint on wooden panels and use a spatula and acrylic paint. I can play freely with these materials. I can use pressure on the panel, the paint is colourfast, it adheres well and is quick-drying. All this allows me to work quickly, putting my ideas onto the panel. It makes me feel great and when others get that same feeling from looking at my paintings, that feels great as well!

The paintings are very dynamic and have a powerful use of colour, but they also have a subtle and refined emotion. They are created with passion and sense of composition.

I like to hear that my work stimulates the imagination of the viewer and that it invites exploration. It is very nice to hear what people see in a painting of mine, which may, of course, be very different from my vision as the artist.

Biography

Born in Wageningen (NL), lived in many different parts of the Netherlands and trained as a Master Painter in Utrecht (NL). I worked in the advertising industry for many years and now I am very happy to have my artist’s studio in Le Marche, Italy.

In my youth I took courses in Art and Painting at the Art Academy. Painting was always my preferred medium and to improve my technique and expertise in a variety of mediums, I went to the national school of painting in Utrecht (NSSU).

After leaving the painting school I wanted to go to the Art Academy, but had to do his compulsory national military service. After that, financial necessity prevented me from returning to full time education.

During that period I won many contracts as a freelancer in interior (re)styling and decoration, designing shop windows, shop interiors and theatrical sets. Occasionally I also produced a painting. i remained in the decoration and advertising business for many years.
Since I have more spare time available, I enjoys Italian life immensely and am creating again, in abundance!
