Background

I live on a farm just above Amsterdam where we keep hobby sheep, chickens, turkeys, horses, two dogs and a cat. I love to draw and paint animals and will often use them as models.
I was formally trained as a Master of Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, and have lived and worked as an automotive engineer and entrepreneur (www.laptoptailors.com) in several European countries. I have drawn and painted from an early age and attended art courses in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and England. In September 2015 I have started the day course at the Wackers Academie in Amsterdam. In May 2015 I was accepted as a member of the Waterlandse Kunstkring.

Statement

I love to paint, and have been a daily painter since the beginning of 2017. This hones my skills and eye.
