About The Artwork

The message of the lone wolf is to choose your own path, and that it’s okay to be a loner by choice. Moreover, this painting tells the story of the balance between light and darkness. If you look at this painting, it portrays two wolves - the real one, and the shadow wolf... You may have heard about the Native American Indian story about two wolves fighting - the white or 'good' wolf and the black or 'bad' wolf. A child asks their father which wolf will win the fight, and the most common answer is: "the wolf you feed will win". Implying that if you feed the 'good' in yourself, it will win. But I discovered this is not the real answer in the story.... The answer should be that you need to feed them both exactly right - as much as they both need - and both wolves will win. It means that if you only focus on or 'feed' the good in yourself, the shadow of that 'good' wolf will grow even bigger, resulting in negative or bad behavior coming out unexpectedly. An example is for instance the stories we all know about guru's abusing their followers etc. So people, remember to do some shadow work, have some fun and be a bad boy or girl now and then ;-).

As a child I lived in tropical Borneo, instilling in me a great love for nature, animals, forests, sunsets and the sea. We moved back to the Netherlands when I was almost ten, and as an adult lived in China, Singapore and Paris. At the moment I live next to the forests in the Netherlands. I am inspired by my dreams, trying to capture the symbols and messages I dream about onto canvas and creating new worlds.
