An ancient discussion: What is art?

In my vision art is an emotion, something one feels. A painting that
makes one turn around to look again, a statue one hás to touch or a
poem dat makes ones mind dwell.

I began to work in 1994 as an independant artist. First with the focus
on painting and later extended with etching, Kinwashicollages and
woodcollages.
There have been a lot of exhibitions all over the Netherlands, for some
highlights see page Agenda.

The meaning of my work must be found in colour, line, form and
composition.
Since 2009 I work with woodveneer in a innovative self-developed
manner, unique and using exclusive veneer.
Currently nature and wood play the lead and there is a development
towards abstract collages.

I take nature out of her context and pose her at an unexpected
background, sometimes figurative but often confusingly abstract and
always evoking a strong emotion...
