I am a self-taught contemporary pastel painter. I was born in The Netherlands, raised in New York and presently live in rural Massachusetts. My work can be found in private collections throughout the Americas and Europe.
In 2006 I set a goal to complete a painting a day by joining The Daily Painters making small works more affordable to collectors. Because of life circumstances I'm not always able to complete a small work each day but I do paint everyday.
Food art and animal portraits have become a favorite subject of mine in the past few years, as well as to my collectors. Please contact me for commissioned work. I paint in pastels, oils and acrylics.
