Born Amsterdam 1964, the Netherlands

Long before I started painting I worked in Amsterdam as a primary school teacher, taught Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch to adults, and wrote lesson material for secondary schools as a volunteer at the Latin America Centre.

I also lived, worked and travelled in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Spain and Portugal. Now I live in the UK.

In 2008 I started exploring painting digitally resulting in a series of ‘Snazzy Rubbish Flowers’ (see digital art). Since 2010 I dedicate my life to painting mostly in water mixable oils (Cobra) and acrylics.
