Whether I’m riding my bicycle through the polder, walking through the city or windsurfing on the North Sea, I continuously see ordinary things that strike me; the light, the shadows, the colors in the landscape, lines or the composition. It is like looking at reality with wonder. Actually, I can no longer walk anywhere without seeing which I can use in my paintings later. I quickly take a few photos and sketches as a reminder to develop the things I saw into a painting. Each painting is an attempt to get the image which is in my head, the atmosphere, onto the canvas.

Are you interested in one of my paintings or drawing? Or do you have some own ideas which you would like to see in a painting, please feel free to contact me.
