BIOGRAPHY

From my studio and workshop in Broek in Waterland I work as a designer on design assignments and as an artist. As a graphic designer I help clients communicate clearly in a changing, increasingly complex world. Creative and distinctive with a wide range of services are covered: design of logos, magazines, websites, books and campaigns.

As an artist I work on commission. Like portraits in oil paint. I paint portraits with the classical technique of the old masters – layer over layer – with a base of clothes and works from the 16th and 17th century, but transformed to the present with a playful twist … In addition, I make monograms with ink on paper. My monograms are not only an amalgamation of two or more letters, but also reflect the personality of a person or a company
