about me

Thank you for visiting my site!
In this section I will tell you a little bit more about me.

I am an artist and I live and work in a beautiful small city named 
Leyden in the Netherlands. I love to make art. 
A day without having made some art feels empty to me. 
Untill 2016 I was a docter/therapist/coach and I helped my clients to 
free their own light and color. 
Now I try to send some color and light into the world trough my art. 
I like working on paper and/or canvas and I create artjournals. 
I also make poems and love to see my work in print, on postcards, 
posters or small books. 
As an artist I wish to create moments of light and joy. 
Color is therefore an important ingredient of my art. 
The beauty of pieces of paper, of stains, of accidental lines is always 
fascinating me. 
I feel challenged to amplify their beauty, to let is speak so they 
can tell their story. 

I love all kinds of materials: I love the most expensive paints and 

the cheapest pencils. 
I love the most beautiful handmade paper and a crumpled, 
yellowed shopping list. 
Therefore my art is usually made of several materials 
and by using several media.
