Painting is my passion, as are people. So i paint people.
I am from The Netherlands, studied and worked there, and raised a son. I traveled quite a lot, and finally settled in Barcelona. Different cultures fascinate me, and the endless mixes. Injustice, fascism, maltreatment and abuse of animals, women, children and men move me to the marrow. I am a victim of my compassion. So i put all these strong emotions and my conclusions about life and about people into the faces and figures on canvas. Painting brings me at ease, it is almost meditation.
