I was born in the Netherlands, where I studied at the University of Amsterdam, after which I moved to Belgium to finish my Master of Arts at the University of Leuven. 


Since then I have moved to Australia and now run a social enterprise that helps fund the Conservation Ecology Centre. Living in a natural environment greatly influences my painting.

I like paintings that offer the viewer the freedom to interpret, most of my works come from a specific place or topic that will get pasted onto the canvas in multiple coats of acrylics.
