Welcome on my website!

This website is made to show my paintings.


I was born in the Netherlands in 1956 and I started painting when I was 45. My profession was documentalist.  I participated as a parttime student at the lessons of  the ´Centrum voor de Kunsten´(that is an institute of art) in Bergen op Zoom, Netherlands. I started painting in a realistic style but afterwards I developed myself to a more abstract style of painting. I make my own designs so every painting is unique. 

Over the years I had several exhibitions in the Netherlands, both solo exhibitions as well as in a group. You can find them under another button on this website.

Since 2013 I live in the Algarve in Portugal and became a resident. I was fortunate enough to exhibit some of my paintings here in Portugal as well. 

On this website you can find not only my exhibitions, but also my work under the specified buttons. If you want to buy one of my paintings you can see how that is done under the button orders. I accept orders to make a painting of the basis of a picture on a no cure no pay agreement. If the result isn't what the ordering party expected the painting will remain however in the ownership of the artist.
