Since my early childhood I felt the need to express my unspeakable feelings.
Drawing, dancing, music helped me with this sometimes difficult task.
When I was thirteen I took an evening class at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Kortrijk, Belgium, where I got my first drawing lessons and where I got a taste for good.
I loved that place and the atmosphere, in-between plaster sculptures and life models, where I could observe those older than me in front of their easels.
My teachers, but also my father, an amateur painter with very good oil painting technique, encouraged me to continue this path.
Three years of visual art studies followed as well as two years of graphic studies at the Sint Lucas Higher Schools of Arts (LUCA School of Arts) in Ghent, Belgium.
