 At Croydon College of Art, London, England, I studied from 1978 till 1983. The courses I took were graphic design, illustration and painting.

,

During this training I discovered the Pre-Raphaelites, Lord Leighton, the Dutch painter Laurens Alma-Tadema, Andrew Wyeth and John Singer Sargent. I consider them my source of inspiration together with the Italian Renaissancists, the Impressionists and many 19th century Russian realistic painters. The American illustrators I admire are a.o. Howard Pyle, N.C.Wyeth, H.C.Chisty, maxfield Parrish, J.C Leyendecker, Milton Glaser, Brad Holland and Gary kelly. My favourite English illustrators are Arthur Rackham, Alan Lee and Don Lawrence.

,

My favourite mediums are oils and watercolor, but also use (color)pencil, pen-and-ink and acrylics.

,

Through my classical education I pay a lot attention to good composition, technique and harmonious use of colors. My interests are divers: nature, realism, fantasy, portraits, murals and I love doing illustrations.

,

Since 1984 I have worked as a painter and free-lance illustrator in the Netherlands for several advertising agencies, publishers and other businesses.  I do commissioned portraits in oils, watercolor and pencil.

,

Since 1988 I also teach at different art centers and art colleges.
