What does Art do to me?
Art inspires me and from my inspirations I make Art. With my paintings I express my feelings.
With this I show how I experience things. I translate my experience into color and shape.
Art movements that inspired me are: Der Blaue Reiter, Fauvism and Die Brücke. These movements fall under Expressionism. These artists did not paint realistic, but from their feelings. They were inspired by colors and shapes.
Color as the essence
In my Art you see a lot of color. Color is my main source of inspiration. I believe in the power of color. Color – only visible with light – is and gives energy. Color is feeling for me.
My work – sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative – is very diverse and is not limited to one theme. I have a good feel for which colors are needed to discover and create emotion, space and form. My work is often playful, always pure and completely unique.
Since 2022 I (actually) only work abstractly. I play with (the power of) colors, looking for unity, harmony and balance.
In 2022 I also decided to cancel both my private FB account (where I posted weekly for ten years until then) and my Instagram account. That felt like an exciting decision. Now I know it was a good decision. It didn’t make me happy to spend so much time to social media. On my website you will also see that I enjoy working on series, such as Madonna, 5xWhite, Flower, Playtime and Childhood.
What can my Art bring you?
My works of Art can enrich your environment, bring joy to your life, teach you to better understand your feelings, offer you comfort, make you curious. The colors and shapes in my Art can inspire you to take other paths, take other actions.
Bring my Art home or give it as a gift?
