16-07-1955, Den Bosch, The Netherlands. Lives and works in his studio situated in his home, ( B&B Bagh Alluin) on the Isle of Baleshare, Western Isles, Scotland. The inspiration that the landscape provide him with is transferred to the canvas in a robust and expressive style. The overpowering impact of the rugged Scottish scenery at the Atlantic coast are portrayed in wild vigorous gestures. However, if you examine the evocativeness of the paintings more closely, you will discover a multiplicity of shades of color and subtle outlines.
