Passion for Print

All my life I have had a passion for print. After my HAVO I chose the Graphic School, because that's where everything I liked so much came together: drawing, technique, machines and repetition. Printing presses that make the same movement all day and always came with the same print, the smell of printing ink, typesetting systems (the predecessor of the DTP systems on the computer). I loved all of that.

After that I studied Graphic Design at the Art Academy. Also very fun and educational. Nevertheless, I then took a different path, and ended up in Sales and Marketing of, among other things, DTP computer systems. Fascinating, because (office) automation was at the beginning of his development.

Now, after many years, I have picked up printing again. Working by hand, with my own press in my studio is the greatest pleasure you can do to me. Then, just like then, I enjoy the smell of printing ink, the repetition of the movements and the prints that come out of my hands.

I make my linoprints all in my own studio. I cut the linoleum with small gouges, so that a letterpress shape is created that can be printed. What I like most is making reduction linoprints. Here you always press a layer with the same lino that you cut away more and more of. A challenge, because you have to stay alert and think carefully about what you do and what you take away. But I love that challenge!

I often work with limited editions, so that no more are ever made than I indicated in the description.

All prints are printed by hand on an etching press. As a result, small differences can occur.
