I am happy to tell you about the research I do in my studio. If my work makes you curious, I would like to welcome you to my gallery at home.

I am a passionate, highly sensitive, enthusiastic artist & doran. Since childhood I have been aware that I am part of creation. I have a deep connection with animals, trees, plants and the universe. And with people. However, I had to discover that as a human being I am also one with the homo sapiens, just one of the mammals, and that is still subject to research :-).

Artist Statement

In my artwork I strive to show a glimpse of the beauty of creation. I am well aware of the many wrongs in the world. With my drawings I hope to contribute to joy, harmony and wonder. Colored pencil is my expertise and I like to work with self-prepared walnut ink. Both are excellent for detailed and refined work. My style is influenced by botanical art, Eastern and Western calligraphy and (Indian) miniatures.
