Hmm... what is there to tell you and might be interesting as well?

OK, here goes: Born at Midsummer 1957, in a marshy area of the Netherlands. Lived all my life there, and I loooove it. Lots of water, and some of the land is actually floating on the water, which feels like walking on a waterbed :P

Didn't do anything with artwork until 1998 when I started to do some graphic design on the PC. A few years later I was a true addict of PSP. There was only one thing I could not stand and that was that I did not know how to draw and paint in the traditional way. So I took artclasses: watercolors, soft pastels, acryl paint.

I am at the point that I know how to "translate" my feelings to the paper (or cotton, or board), however I feel I am still at the stage of the beginner. So there is lots left to learn, which is part of the fun!

Current Residence: the Netherlands
Favourite genre of music: metal, folk
Favourite style of art: fantasy
Personal Quote: Don't forget to smile today
It feels like my life is redirected another way, not the easy going but I am so happy with it. It is like an angel is guiding me how to wake up again and look at the world with new eyes. It doesn't feel like a nice world, but it is definitely a world which is meant to live in and love in - thus a world to love.
The things going on in my mind, my life, ask quite a lot of my energy and time, all in all I am dealing with this for over a year now - ever since Augusts 2012 Blue Moon - finally resulting in my own internet site on food and nutrition and all things related to these subjects. For those interested (and dutch speaking), this is the address: Soon after I started the site I have a nutritional expert/food coach participating. I had to do some travelling before I started our cooperation, at least I need to know who I am working with, so I wanted to meet her first while she lives in another part of our country.
This means that art is not the main focus at the moment - although I subscribed for traditional art classes this Autumn season, I am looking forward to it ;)
So my art account will be on a low activity level. My stock account is another story, I am categorizing pictures to make (special) stock packs, and I do hope I find some time next month to upload a few of them.
I think that's all for now, in the meantime, take care ;)

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥ Written with love~
