About me

IINTRO: Born in Eemnes, the Netherlands growing 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. Starting singing jazz professionally by the age of fourteen was part of my education. Over the past 30 years, I have worked with many audiences, stages and great musicians. 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.

In 1988 I did an art education in Amsterdam designing jewelry and got my master degree. In 1998 I worked as a graphic designer and got my diploma and worked as a designer and photo retoucher. Also interests toward composition theory and freehand shadow drawing.

My work is about visions giving a different view on reality 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 dark shadows lines can create a different view or movement.

The most important thing in art photography is getting the right balance by making a convincing composition. An image from a timeless perspective creating the universal language through various thoughts. Photographing the art of duality.
