Born and raised in the Netherlands and originally educated as an electrician by profession I was left with little time in between to draw...at that time not as much as I wished and longed for.
All my life I have been drawing portraits of family and friends, nature...things around me. which allowed me to experiment with colors and different material. I went to art school in 1976 affirming myself as a graphic artist. Shortly after, I landed a position in the art department of a major firm in my town. Venturing deeper into my creative vision, I opened my own business as a graphic art designer in 1988. Even though this endeavor gave me a feeling of fulfillment, I never stopped perfecting my craft. I kept making sketches and tried to develop some kind of technique in it ...which brought me to where I am today.
Went to artschool from 1976 - 1982, graduatited as graphic disigner.,
