Artist Curriculum Vitae

I am a Dutch born artist and published writer. I have been living in Southern Spain since 2004. I followed my education in the field of expressive art in New Zealand and the Netherlands. In addition I worked in the studios of professional artists both in the Netherlands and Italy where I lived for five years. My work has been exhibited and purchased internationally.

I am a full-time writer and artist. I create paintings, both oils and acrylics but I also have a passion for mandalas, however, I do not consider my mandalas as my main art. There are periods that I like to work with ceramic and create small ceramic balls and statues as well.
