I love to paint. It can be any subject, but the end result will be colourful and often abstract. I try not to be too literal in my presentations, so that people can follow their imagination. I am happy to do commissions as well. I was born and brought up in the Netherlands, but have lived now for 20 + years in the UK. My passion for painting started actually when I moved to England. The beautiful landscape inspired me to start with watercolour, but I slowly moved to acrylics, which is a very versatile medium. It dries quickly, which I use to go over the painting again, adding new colourful forms and shapes. I work in general from images in my head, but also use photos for the initial idea of my painting, which will develop entirely into a new, mostly abstract or impressionistic artwork. I like to paint with a lot of colours and acrylic mediums to create a textured, lively and interesting painting. I've also started with creating sculptures. Some are individual clay sculptures. Some are casts in Jesmonite, an acrylic-modified gypsum composite, which feels heavy and solid. The figures are finished with metal powders, varnishes, and earth pigments with an absolutely beautiful result. My studio is my creative haven, with all my paintings around me to inspire me for more work!
