was born on May 23, 1941 in Amsterdam and started painting and drawing
at a very young age. But from 1964 Iwas working in the Healthcare. First as a nurse, later I was sitting in the board of directors of a psychiatric hospital. In the meantime, I attended various schools such as the Famous Artist School, the
Art Academe Ruudt Wackers in Amsterdam, and a post academic year of the
Free Academe Haarlem. And I followed various types of master classes of
Sam Drukker, Bert Oosinga, Maarten Welbergen, Kirsten Geisler, who are
well-known artists. They taught me painting in a Dutch way.
paintings tells stories about landscapes, persons and myself.
From 2008 I edit photo's and make digital paintings by computer.
My inspiration is my fascination. An translation from realism to abstract and upside down. And the colour shows the meaning of all my paintings.
