Art stimulates your imagination and creates change
The River of Life
The River of Life represented in colorful and layered modern art. I use nature as a metaphor to express our emotions. The journey through life, intermediate phases and life cycles intrigue me.
I translate it into contemporary art, in which nothing is really fixed. Let yourself be moved to another dimension, where imagination and emotion go hand in hand. As a great nature lover I use nature as a metaphor. For how we live and undergo changes in life.
I play with abstractions, colour, language, power and poetry. My contribution with art to a better world. With an eye for nature and mental well-being.
In recent years I recycle plexiglass from companies into modern art, reliëfs. I make paintings on canvas and in the warmer months I work En Plein Air, directly to nature, on location.
What does art mean to me?
Art is a necessity of life and has many sides. It’s my way to express myself. My gift, with which I can inspire others. A source of joy and comfort. A way to order chaos and create new one. A mirror and a vanishing point. A form of imagining and showing how beautiful the world is
As a designer I started at local TV and continued my path working at a design company, a newspaper to internal graphic designer at the university. After 7 years in employment, I worked as an independent designer for another 19 years. Project-based, the balance has always been with the arts. My heart went out to image design, such as logos, book covers, etc. I started doing more art projects and less designing. And so the logical step came to focus 100% on art in 2019.
