Artist2010 186




Amsterdam 1-11-1946

Techniques: graphic and mixed techniques.

Has been working in graphics with considerable enthusiasm since 1984.


My work is mainly abstract, though with clearly recognizable figurative references.

The subjects are mostly related to the human form and its hidden relationships.

All the images in my work are a reference to the trust and protection in which I grew up.

Perhaps this explains why I create a fairytale-like image, one that might also be seen as a

metaphor for a carefree world a world of acceptance, tolerance and happiness.

The symbols that can be recognized refer to important events in a human life, recreated on the canvas and in my graphic art.

My work is self-explanatory, which is its purpose.  You can view my art however you like.

The many colours and techniques used give my work a sense of life, of memories, shrouded in a special atmosphere.

But a sense of harmony, understanding and love also converge on the canvas and in my graphics.

The objects I make are consciously created mostly from natural combinations of oil paint, acrylics, gouache and inkt.

In my work I like to combine warm earthy colours with bright colours.


The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom
