About my art

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but the inward significance”


We all need to learn how to live our life with all the good and difficult things, life can bring. Everyone has their own history, life events, grieve, pain, anger, hope, power, vulnerability, strength and love.

The quote of Aristotle inspires me to find out what lies behind the surface. In my portraits I feel freedom to paint and create not the way it “should be” but discover the emotions and expressions we all have. Sometimes we are (not yet) capable of showing them and bring them into the light where it can heal and reconnect with ourselves and the other.

For the last two years I paint several series about:

"Be still and know" about the importance of silence and rest to face your inner world.
"Femal Archetypes" about what we can learn from the femal characters in our life. 
"Soulportraits" about the diversity of feelings, emotions and find that inner strenght and power we all have.

Clip Danny Vera “Spark a Fire”

Een bijzonder uitstapje naar een andere tak van sport. In april mocht ik het achtergrond decor maken voor de clip van Danny Vera. Film – en fotografiebedrijf Set Vexy produceerde de video. Het werden heel veel sterren op heel veel doek!

De videoclip kun je hier bekijken.
