I was born in 1943 in Denekamp, Netherlands.After my two sons became independend, I deceided to study at the Academy of arts and follow an old dream.I love colours and I'm inspired mainly by surrealistic and magic-realistic artists.Currently I'm living and working in Sint-Oedenrode in Holland.After completing my study at the Academy,I began searching for sources of inspiration and my own style.At first I found inspiration in objects from my surrounding,resulting in series of still life paintings.Later on I focussed more on my own imagination and perception.Traveling memorys, personal and global events and emotions are now the inspirationsource.Using images based on every day reality I try to create another world, a world sometimes a little strange. My paintings are richly coloured and narrative. I want to bring some joy and sometimes I have a message. I also make portaits.
