About the artist:

" I am an autodidact, ever since childhood I have been drawing or painting, following a wide range of classes and workshops, starting at the Vrije Akademie in Heerlen and later in The Hague at the Koorenhuis. Now I am studying and working in a group with the painter Rineke Kop in her inspiring studio in The Hague, where I continue to develop my abstract, visual language, using new techniques and materials. Color, and the layered skin of paint and mixed media,  are important in my abstract work, providing balance and reinforcing the composition.

On linen canvas, wooden panels or cardboard, I apply acrylic paint with all kinds of materials,  using brushes, knifes, sponges and spatulas. Later I might add accents with gold wax, oil crayon, pencil, or ink. 

Layer by layer I continue until I feel that it's right, and that the result encourages the viewer to search the canvas to see what is happening on it or under it. During the intuitive, organic process of painting, the abstract, sometimes almost landscape-like, image emerges as if by itself.  Sometimes I decide to sand down a layer to bring out the underlying color and structure. The challenge of working spontaneously, taking risks with materials and colors, building up and down without the fear of ruining it, make that a painting can develop.

Nature, the seasons, a great palette of colors and music are my never ending, joyful source of influence."
