For the love of making and the smell of ink.

I just make things I like to make, for me, for myself. Little stories about me, in a clear line, clean and simple. Preferable in black on white, like most of my linocuts are.
In everything I try to stay true to myself, which I find difficult now and then. And it still can surprise me that somebody else likes what I make as much as I do.

It makes me happy to work with my hands and I see myself more as a maker than an artist. I like so many things, which is nice but also a problem, when it comes to focus ;^))
Since I was little I love to draw, etching and linocuts came at a later stage. I love the smell of the lino and of the printing ink, and I love the sound of my beautiful printing press! Since I have that press, a Korrex Stuttgart proofpress from 1967, I can also print texts using old wooden letterpress letters and hopefully soon also lead type.

Inspiration can come from an image, something someone said, a word, a sentence and so many other things. I like the process of writing, drawing and thinking, of inventing, modifying, adapting and sorting out. I think I like this the best, the brooding part.
After that (when it comes to linocuts) I draw directly on the lino and adjust, when necessary, while cutting and proof-printing.
Finally I print just a few, because I like my editions to be limited.

I studied and graduated in 1995 from the Willem de Kooning Art Academy in Rotterdam, as autonomous 2 dimensional artist, drawing and graphic art.
In addition I'm a certified interior adviser with years of experience in design, styling and advise.
