I find ideas for new paintings in everyday objects in my home. Just something that catches my eye at that particular moment. It can be an intensive study in form and color.


I like to fiddle with words, hence the title. A pig is of course more than a piece of ham. That is visible in my portraits of pigs.


My landscapes are recognizable. The weather and the light determine the dynamic and atmosphere of the painting.




A portrait doesn't have to be large in size. The canvas of ‘Beatrix’ is 12 x 12 cm. It invites the viewer to come closer.
