About Tyl Destoop

My name is Tyl Destoop and I'm a self-taught Belgian artist. I'm a professional graphic designer for more than 20 years, doing graphic design, illustrations and animation.

I fell in love really bad with the beautiful region of Normandy, France. So much that I decided to follow my heart and go live there! Surrounded by the beauty of rural France, I was triggered to start painting impressions of what I see and feel. I chose watercolour to create my art because I love the way watercolour behaves on paper, like it has a mind of it's own. Each painting is a challenge and the medium forces me to think fast and put the right strokes under the right conditions on the right place. My goal is to convey the feelings of peace and harmony that I have in these beautiful places to the viewer. The best compliment is when people say, "I want to be in that place."
