Born in Amsterdam in 1969, I was trained as a decorative painter and worked doing faux marble finishing, gilding and other decorative techniques while exploring in my own paintings on canvas new ways to paint and express my vision of the world.

Today I create, beside traditional oil paint on canvas paintings, oil paint & epoxy resin, thick riverstone- or mineral-shaped canvasses, representing organic structures,                                    which I see as the ‘Structures of Life’                   

To me, ‘Life’ is the primal force that moves everything in the universe, from one physical state to the next.
And since matter never disappears, all the components of which it exists are over and over rearranged, structuring and forming patterns, that can be surprisingly                            similar in very different circumstances
From microscopic details to the largest scale in space, life seems to manifest itself everywhere in similar structures. 
In this light, is there even a distinction between 'natural' and 'artificial' ?
If a spider builds a web, we call it natural, so if big animals like ourselves create things why is it ‘artificial’?

For me, this vision needs to be explored, questioned, visualized!
