Last summer I have been filmed for the Dutch program “vergezicht” of the regional television the BLOS. This intervieuw gives a nice impression about my way of working and my studio. Of course (sorry for the non-dutch) only when you can understand dutch!
I have experience in many techniques and subjects, but mostly I work and also teach in the materials acrylics, pastels, colour pencil and mixed techniques, also with watercolour.
One of my specialities in portrait is not only getting the outward appearance, but also the essence of the soul withing the person or the animal. These are the ingredients of a good portrait, and give it an extra dimension.
It is also possible to ask me to portrait a beloved but deceased loved one. Mostly I need to work with pretty inferior photo material, but that moslty isn’t a problem for me.
One of my favourite subjects are horses. It is their strength and beauty, combined with their elegance and character that inspires me.
