Last and this year I visited Venice and became inspired by the many islands, the floating sea-weeds and the colors of the Lagoon around the city. At my first visit close to the station I found lines on a wall with marks of the possiblities about the rising water levels waters within the coming years around the city. I made a new serie THE WATERS OF VENICE without knowing and unaware that this issue was in my subconsiousness. Have a look at page inspirational Venice or Photo gallery.

About my work:
I am a Durch artist living and working in Amsterdam. I started drawing at an early age. In my teens I followed private classes with a number of different artists. When I was seventeen, I visited Italy for the first time, admiring the work of the many Renaissance artists. It was of great influence of my career.
The materials I choose are minimal; ink, water, pastels and some acrylic paint. My pastelpaintings are a mix of Eastern and Western tehiniques with a special pictoresque effect. Since my time at Art school, my affinity is with paper because the specific characteristics of paper I cannot translate to other materials such as linen.
