Well about me, not a person of many words, but okay here goes:
I was born in The Netherlands (a.k.a. Holland) I emigrated to New Zealand almost 17 years ago and have just recently moved from Christchurch to the Bay of Plenty. I grew up in a 'creating' home environment, Mom was always busy with crafts of some sort and Dad was our inventor from his backyard shed. I had a great Art teacher at High-school who really inspired me and edged me on in the creative field. I ended up working with fabrics firstly when I studied at the 'Academie de Couture'
(Fashion Academy and textile arts) in Rotterdam. I also designed covers for computer-games (mostly Science Fiction) on a free-lance basis and worked in a variety of areas in the fashion industry from concept design to creations.
My re-focussing to sketching and painting began again when the feeling to create images on paper, wood or canvas won from the other creative exploits, still like to include fabrics if I can.
So I mainly work with Mixed Media on wood panels or canvas, that gives me the freedom to choose whatever medium fancies me at that moment or for that particular project. My work is probably best described as whimsical illustrative and stylized with little folk art touches.
Thanks so much for your visit, do come back every now and then ♥
