I was born in 1949 and only later in life,  I started painting in 2007. Before then I was busy reading books, collecting art and taking courses at the Centre for Visual Arts the Window in Wageningen. In the period 2007 to 2010 I participated in art fairs and expositions. In the beginning I was very inspired by the beauty of the landscape and by the people I met in my life which I transformed into a painting in a fairly loose brushwork and in a clear more or less realistic style. Behind my donkey I went on path via a route full of expression and cobra to a more informal style of painting until I returned to my roots in 2016 and realized that I have never been away. This Gallery gives an overview of my work.
