A line or stroke is very important to me, I always try to make the image as strong as I can, with only a few strokes. This looks very simple, but is in fact a constant search of trial and error, until it looks natural and easy.
I was educated as a fashion designer at the Academy of Arts ARTEZ in Arnhem. After 20 years of designing clothes and teaching design, i started painting and drawing horses and other animals. Since then, I am very inspired by free art forms. And especially works with animals as subject, always have my attention.
