From the moment I was born (1993) in Heerlen in Limburg, being creative slowly has been passed on to me by my grandfather and mother. Painting ran like a thread through my life: from art classes in high school, my job as art therapist in psychiatry to my own business as a painter.
Give me paint, a brush and a blank canvas and I’ll be happy
Being busy with intuitively mixing colors and applying this to bring a painting to life always ensures that I come into peace and can create from my authentic self. In a time where society can sometimes be quite overwhelming, hard and hectic, I hope to give back more softness, harmony and above all a lot of love to this beautiful world with my paintings.
A lot of my work is now hanging in people’s homes in the Netherlands, France, Portugal and even China! From flower paintings to personal portraits: I really enjoy making people so happy with my paintings.
Did you know...
- …my birthday is on Valentine's Day?
- …I am both left and right handed when painting?
- …I mainly work with the primary colors of acrylic paint and therefore mix all colors myself?
- …I live together with my dear partner in beautiful Heerlen?
- …I have my studio at home?
Paintings with a story
The concept of ‘paintings with a story’ started with myself. When I was confronted with the autoimmune disease Alopecia a few years ago, my disease process has inspired me to work onverhaal uit te werken in a series of paintings. Since then I keep writing all the stories that lie behind my (flower) paintings, but also the commissioned portrait paintings that I make for my clients. Big stories, but also small stories are always wonderful to capture in a painting. It is exactly this symbolism that makes a painting personal and therefore lively.
