I love to live as if there’s time for everything, with full attention. No matter if that’s making art, having good conversations, being in nature, or teaching. Sometimes, it feels like there are too many ideas inside me and that I cannot do everything. But if I just focus on one thing, I enjoy every minute.
I was really wondering if I should tell you this… but it’s definitely part of the story so I can’t keep it to myself.
Needless to say a painter needs a good pair of eyes. In my case, I haven’t. Having suffered from glaucoma since birth, I am blind in my right eye and have vision of around 65% in my left eye. That’s no excuse; I paint and I have always been doing that, even in times when my total vision was just 5% because of early cataract.
As a child my creativity helped me to structure the outside world that seemed so chaotic to me. Therefore I built a large inner world inside that I could always go to. You must know I was a very shy and dreamy kid who preferred to be alone or with one or two best friends. Along the way I found out others were seeing more, or at least other things than I. So I had to cope with that. Of course there were some times that I felt, and still feel, limited by that.
However, I can truly say my eyes brought me to my art, as creating art helped me to gain energy and structure that helped me get back to reality. That’s my full story: I want to share this world with you!
What You Find Inside
I strongly believe that everyone has a rich inner world to discover. Painting can be a wonderful way to enter yours, as well as looking to art.

I’m so happy you are considering buying a piece of art! All pieces are original and you can be sure there’s only one piece of each. That makes you a proud owner of a unique work.

I use a variety of materials and techniques in my work, like paper, textiles and things I collect on my daily walks. Here you will see all my mixed media paintings.
I love painting botanicals, flowers and gardens in a very abstract way. Sometimes, I want to look at a specifil flower very closely to create a study of it, like Hibiscus.
Figures & Portraits
I don’t often intend to paint people; they just appear in my work. As a teenager I always drew faces, I guess it’s still in me.
