Painting for me is an adventure. Always searching for the essence, grasping for the person or animal in question. I paint generously, on large formats and to the fullest!

About me

After having been a self-taught painter for some time, I then started at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arendonk, Belgium in 2009. I finished the academy in 2015, having specialized in Model and Portrait.

I paint with heart and soul and always living beings. Only this gives me the feeling that I need to have to be able to vanish into my painter’s bubble when I paint.

"How creativity flows when love is involved…"

Studio Sassoferrato, Italy

I have been living half in The Netherlands (North-Brabant) and half in Italy (Le Marche) since 2016. This change of scenery is, for me, very inspiring. All these different colors, scents, impressions and emotions are like fuel to my creativity!

My work has become more intense, larger and much more colorful since living partly in Italy. This resulted in a new style, oil portraits on a background of graffiti bursting with positive energy!

On commission

Besides self inspired work, I also work on commission. Portraits of people, dogs or cats in large formats, minimum size 100x100cm. I always search for an expression or emotion that is characteristic to my subject. This always is a snapshot. For that reason I work with photos.

Mainly I use oil, but also other mediums such as Graffiti spraypaint and Acryl. The application varies from thin layers, thick lumps to spray, thin drips and in all combinations. The canvasses that I work with are made of high quality linen and aluminum frames and are obtained from the company Artel.
