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 ;)
