Color, shape and movement are the starting points of my work – abstract visual stories with no starting or ending point. Captivating the viewer in color explosions full of energy, tension and contrasts, passing on “joie de vivre” – in compositions that are often based on musical influences. My paintings are a dialogue between static plains on the one hand and the dynamic force of the moving line at the same time. Born in Cologne, graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (College of Fine Arts and Design, Amsterdam) in 1989. After working for international companies (Ireland, the Netherlands, England and Germany) for the past 30 years, I have been working full-time since the beginning of 2020 -time as a visual artist in studios in the Netherlands, Germany and France.
