I was educated at the Academy of Royal Arts The Hague (1985-1990) (monumental design). Before that I studied at the Free Academy in Rotterdam (1984-1985) (photography,design,printing,painting).

After graduating, I moved the accent in my work from monumental/3dimensional to 2 dimensional; drawing & painting. After research of all the aspects of the line, in all its forms, in figurative work, (Earlier work), I now work in mixed-media.(The Four Seasons, Recent Work & Once Upon a Time).

I’m inspired by images and texts from newspapers, newssites, the internet & photography, having to do with the world we live in. Cynisism & absurdism are in my work. I investigate, tell stories, ask questions, combine & associate.
I live and work in Oudebildtzijl in the Netherlands.
