Enrich your life. Buy art you love, and it will love you back.
Do you want to make your living space more beautiful, personal and warm? Are you looking for a way to express who you are by owning a unique piece of art that is yours and only yours? That you can cherish and pass on to your children? A piece that tells a story and can open a conversation?
I make paintings, illustrations & mixed media art to show you what I see, to make you feel what I feel and to share with you what I’ve been taught. This results in figurative paintings, mixed media art and prints in which people take a central place. My goal is to create aesthetically pleasing images with a story that can give your living space that extra touch of personality.
As a child, I was drawn to the beautiful, mysterious and sometimes shocking images I saw in my parents’ photo gallery. My fascination for the power of images was born so it was no surprise that I chose the path of visual art as a 16-year-old.
In June 1998, I graduated as a Master of Visual Art, but until some time ago I believed in the myth of the starving artist. I LOVE te eat so that idea didn’t really resonate. ;p As a result I worked as an employee in different functions & companies for a some years. Until 2011 when I started a creative agency with a focus on images for B2B clients, MIST, together with my partner.
Wow! I was able to set my own agenda and work with the people I wanted to work with on creative projects I chose myself. A dream come true! MIST is growing and, although I love working for clients, with it my desire to make things that are all mine. Creations without compromises.
Now that I’ve returned to this path, I hope to inspire others to do the same. To choose what makes you happier than happy. Too live the life you love & love the life you live. This by setting an example and by the themes in my work that tell stories about personal growth, beliefs, positivity & the power of our minds.
I feel a need to do this because ‘the little hippie in me’* is convinced this can make the world a better & more beautiful place. Literally and figuratively.
