After art school I started out as a painter, with oil on canvas.

Later on, more and more my favorite artwork started to be making drawings.

 

On the basis of pencil I developed my personal style, with a growing mix of materials.

For my large drawings I use various materials, like ink, fineliner and cuttings from glossy magazines.

Other materials or techniques can also be seen in some drawings.

Recently I explored watercolor, as you can see on that page, and in the drawing 'Play" down below.

I even created my own 'braille' with perforated paper to make patterns of flowers.

 

Most of the time I start out with only a vague idea, just somewhere on the big paper, and let the drawing 'grow'.

Only when I'm finished, I understand  exactly what the drawing is telling me.

 

Drawing  'Hunting scene'  Inspired by travel in France 150x175 cn mixed materials

 

As I said on the homepage, nature is my first source of inspiration.

But perhaps you can also recognize the influence of the embroidered tapestries of the 17th century in my drawings.

I like heir harmonious, 'fairytale' quality and their overwhelming feeling of size and beauty.

The same feeling I get from nature.

 

But ironically, if you look a little closer, these tapestries are not only fairytales, and that goes for my work, too.

It is all in the details. For instance, the 'glossy' sensation of water running in a 'Hunting Scene' can turn into a sense of a crying earth. Or a barbed wire pattern to 'design' a poppy can pose the question of the essence of beauty.
