09-03-2013// #BestTenSeconds

Until the end of April you can see an installation of my #BestTenSeconds in Galerie Urinoir Bezet. For the first time ever I have not used paintings or drawings, but only text in an exhibition. It is very new to me, but also rewarding, to not make a painting in the studio and hope it finds a nice place to be exhibited, but to let the space dictate what visual interference is needed.

The installation can be viewed every day of the week, 24 hours every day.

You can find all my #BestTenSeconds here on my blog.


27-11-2012// WUNDERKAMMER On Friday 30-11 from 16.00-20.00 hrs and Saturday 1-12 from 10.00-17.00 hrs my work can be viewed @ Wunderkammer Salon #1 'The making of…", Kanaalstraat 149A in Amsterdam.

I will be present myself on Saturday. Don't hesitate and come by, I'd love to tell you more about my work and creative process.

05-04-2012// TILL DEATH DO US PART
Remember my first commission (see item below)? Well, the challenge is done. I was happy with the result myself, and even more happy when the bride to be got all tearful when I presented the result. Tearful, not out of disappointment, but because she (and he!) loved it. An assignment like this doesn't make the creative process any easier but it was well worth it.

A couple who like my work asked me to make them a painting in honor of their upcoming wedding in May 2012, which they will also use for the invitations. Such an honor and challenge.

In September you can enjoy some of my paintings in MAC Berlijn Media and Art Cafe in Enschede while you drink your drink, eat a wonderful Italian lunch or listen to some good live jazz music. Don't be a stranger! Check here for an overview of current and upcoming exhibitions.

10-07-2011// MISTER MOTLEY
These are the days all academies of art show the work of their graduating students. For me, a graduating student, a wonderful chance to talk about my work and art in general with visiting gallery owners, art lovers and other artist. Mister Motley, a Dutch art magazine, also came by. I'm honored to be mentioned on Mister Motley's blog!

20-04-2011// OFF TO LEBANON
I was completely overwhelmed to get an invitation to participate in the first Riviera Art Forum in Beirut, Lebanon. Of course I said yes! I'll be working together with about 20 international artists for 5 days, from May 10th until May 14th 2011. Such an amazing chance to visit Lebanon and represent The Netherlands as a visual artist.

01-01-2011// A NEW LOOK AND FEEL
Graphic designer Mirjam Schaaf at Ontwerpstation put loads of her creative energy in a completely new identity for me and my website. I used my free time this past holiday to learn x-html and this site is the result. A website in which I feel my drawings and paintings get all the space and attention they deserve.
