I am passionate about art history and work on stimulating creativity, spontaneity and risk taking with my students. I sell my original paintings, silkscreen prints and ceramic pieces. I studied at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and The Institute of Education at the University of London. Some lithographic prints of my work have been produced by the encore art group in Canada. (What was Canadian Art Prints.)
