Painter & Poet
Born in Holland in 1963, I attended the Royal Academy of the Fine Arts in 1988, studying photography.
I soon changed to painting, as I found the freedom of expression this medium offers much more attractive. However in 1990 I left the academy to take life by the scruff as a sailor on the river Rhine, as a chef, as a carpenter, and abandoned the easel altogether.
In 1999 I decided to emigrate to New Zealand.
Here, slowly but surely and undeniable, the paint-virus resurfaced, resulting in (solo) exhibitions, and now, in keeping with the times, this recent website.
