Welcome To My Site...

My paintings are meant to be illustrations of waves -



I lived in Monrovia, Liberia's capital, with my mother, 3 brothers, 1 sister, 6 dogs, 1 pygmy hippo and 2 cats, in a large 2 story house, with a garden bordering on the beach. My mother ran a veterinary hospital on the first floor. Practically every day my brothers and I surfed the waves opposite our house.



After my return to the Netherlands, I became interested in bird taxidermy. To make a bird look natural in it's rest position (wings folded), is a continuous challenge. The basis of any improvement in this endeavor is my growing awareness of mechanical forces, especially gravity.



It helps me to paint waves.
