BIO: I was born and raised in The Netherlands only to leave in the late 1980’s.
After extensive travel I settled in Sydney to pursue a career in the arts.
For over more than 25 years now I have been played an active role in the Sydney art world..
After 8 years of full time and part time study at a number of art colleges in Australia as well as overseas I have established myself as a professional independent artist in Sydney.

In the early years my work was mainly (semi) figurative. It did not take long, however, before my work gradually moved towards total abstraction.
Abstraction opened up a whole new world for me with endless possibilities for self-expression and exploration and a new more pure way of creating art.

At first my abstract style was very expressive with bold colours and brushwork but over the years the work evolved increasingly towards a much more controlled way of working dominated by pure shapes, straight lines and more harmonising colours and tones creating a far more balanced, ordered and harmonious whole.

After using oils and acrylics ever since day one I have now diversified by using a number of different materials. In some of my later works for example I have successfully used cut-out vinyl pressed on perspex. This has resulted in me being able to work with very clean/sharp lines and using different colours and their effects normally harder to achieve by traditional means.

Abstraction has given me the opportunity to analyse and examine new possibilities of making art, given me a larger scope to freshly interpret artistic meaning and a different way of seeing the world. LESS...
