I make animal & nature drawings with pastel. I am self-taught and have further developed my pastel technique. After the Graphic Lyceum Utrecht, I worked for years in the advertising as a designer/desktop publisher. My inspiration mostly comes from nature & animals. Especially capturing the personality and expression of the animal is important to me. In addition to commissioned work I also make wildlife drawings. I have had the opportunity to exhibit in the Netherlands and in London (The Mall Gallery – Wildlife Artist of the Year – David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, finalist in 2019/2020/2021).
