Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.Briefly studied at the Royal Academy in the Hague in the 60's dropped out and ended my travels in London where I have lived and worked for the last 25 years.
I am a self taught oil painter and an etcher and I like to work out similar ideas in those very different media. Painting is for me a daylight activity and a very senseous medium.
Etching in contrast is the fantasy of after midnight, of hard-won lines and deep inprinting.
Much of my images are tableaux vivants showing the hypocrisy of our social graces which gives us a veneer of civilisation yet does not hide our private awareness of an innate savagery.
