The depiction of women is the most important theme in my work. Furthermore the painting of tissue and the quality of cloth-materials is of considerable importance. After a foundation course in Art and drawing followed with a fashion-design course, I discovered around my 25th year 'the wonderful world of oil-paint'. Almost my whole life I had been drawing, but oil paint was a straightforward revelation. 'Love at first sight'. My main inspirational sources are the Flemish Primitives, Memling, Rogier van der Weyden as well as Hans Holbein. Their work is the model of perfection in painting technique, material-expression, composition and the use of color. It breathes the peace and harmony which I also want in my own work.

 Triptych


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Triptych is the result of a deep inner wish to have one for myself. Looking at the special form of a triptych I consider this the beauty of it. A triptych is playful and visually exciting, it can be closed by the hinged panels and an inspiring text can be painted on it. N.B. This Triptych is in my own possession.
