I visited Venice several times and became inspired by the atmosphere, The floating sea-weeds and the colors of the Lagoon around the city. At my first visit I found close to the station a wall with marks about the danger of the rising sea -level within the coming years. Inspired by this danger I made this new serie. More information have a look at: About my work: the page Inspirational Venice.

2018: Its Liquid dedicated interview by director Luca Curci.
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 for a study-trip Italy for the first time. Admiring the work of the many Renaissance artists, like Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Del Sarto, Botticelli etc. These famous artists where of great influence in my career later.
The materials I choose are minimal; ink, water, pastels and some acrylic paint. My pastelpaintings ( drawings ) 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.
