I am a Dutch artist, who grew up in Lierop, Noord-Brabant, and live and work in Wageningen and part of my time in Amsterdam. Trained as a scientist, educated in entomology and ecology at Wageningen University (MSc and PhD), i am working as a full time artist for a number of years. Nature, biology, ecology and environment, forests, trees and landscapes are important themes in my scientific as well as my artistic work. I developed my art skills by slow looking in nature and at other artists, and most of all practice, practice, practice... Workshops on painting with watercolor by Jan Baas (MK24, Amsterdam), a Westerdok masterclass by Rosemin Hendriks (ateliers Westerdok, Amsterdam), online courses on photography and on charcoal drawing as well as freestyle drawing by Jan Baas (Grafisch Collectief Thoets, Amsterdam) helped me to finetune my skills.
