The Artist and the village

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, by clients from Amsterdam to New York, Paris, Rome, Moscow and many more.
Since 2011 I live in the wonderful, magic seaside village La Herradura in Andalusia, southern Spain. One of my books is about this small seaside village and is about its history, artists and quirky people. This book is called Reflections from La Herradura. 

La Herradura is a very interesting village which attracts many artists. It is beautifully located in a bay in the form of a horseshoe. La Herradura in fact means Horseshoe. For more information about my book and the village feel free to visit my La Herradura-Cultural website

I am a full-time writer and artist. My main art so to speak is paintings, both oil paintings and acrylics but I also have a passion for mandalas although I do not consider my mandalas as my main art. There are period that I like to work with ceramic and create small ceramic balls and statues.
