Painting is the thread that weaves trough my life. I work many figuratively, with short detours to sillives, animals and landscapes. Color is an important element of all of my paintings.
I studied at Willem the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam and graduated 2007 at the Academy of visual arts in Amsterdam. I worked as a teacher in formal education and I host drawing and painting classes for adults. Sharing my enthousiasme for, and knowledge of the technical aspects of painting is what I love best.
I participated in the Open Atelier Nieuwmarkt.
