Born in Hengelo 10-10-1945

At a young age my favorite things to do were drawing and painting.My greatest wish was to attend the art school,AKI in Enschede.Unfortunately our family circumstances determined a differt decision,so I did a study entrepneurship in home furnishing in Rotterdam.

In my spare time,I was in the studio of professional painters as Piet Kusters and Wilhelmina Bakkenes where I further developed as a painter.

Painting is a journey of discovery in shape and color.I paint not,but "It" paints.Beautiful structures that have been degraded through the test of time are objects that fascinate me.They are source of inspiration for me.
