About me


Born in Eemnes, the Netherlands As I grew up in an artistic environment with my father who was a jazz musician and a visual artist. My mother is an alt mezzo-soprano singer. I started to perform jazz singing professionally at the age of fourteen as part of my education. I have worked with many audiences, stages and great musicians over the past 30 years. Growing up with art and philosophy, my father taught me life lessons what no university can teach. Teachings are experiences and life itself. As a teenager starting practicing meditations techniques on my way to self-knowledge.


I started my art education in Amsterdam jewelry designing and graduated in 1993 and got my master degree. My interest direction graphic designing, drawing, and composition also working as a graphic designer and to retouch photos.

I think in my work more of visions about reality giving different opinions making a more romantic classic style. Life experience, meditating, and self-knowledge techniques play a huge role in my life. Inner perception is to capture an image from the unconsciously part of the mind to get the right knowledge. Flowing shadow lines come together to form one cohesive design. The shadow can create a different view or movement. Meaning to say they are sometimes two or three components of one image. Compositions using dark shadows sides you can perceive a staggered movement if you observe the image well. For me, the most important thing in art photography is creating the right balance in an image by making a strong composition. Making an image from a timeless perspective is to create the universal language and various thoughts. I photograph the art of life.
