I was born in 1979 in the Netherlands. In 2005 I finished the academy of media and art in Amsterdam and worked several years as a graphic designer. Art is for me is bringing emotion, I love it when a painting really get's to you, gives you a little tickling. The image is leading to imagination and comes alive for the person who looks at it. I get my inspiration from the people around me, a long walk in the park, life and world issues. With my paintings primarily figurative I want the viewer to experience different emotions. To let people get closer to their emotions and rethink things that are important for use human beings living together on our planet. I use in some of my artwork old newspapers for recycling it makes the painting more actual, and that the small pieces of news paper becomes a whole new image and have their second life is just a beautiful.
