My Bio
Creativity only produces small pieces of work. The rest I put into ideas, fun, other ideas, works of art that can't be displayed here. But some pieces can be shown here and I'll try to upload some of my work. I hope others will have fun with it too and perhaps, get some inspiration or ideas, just be looking at these.

Currently, I'm updating our website ( .. Dutch only for now, but perhaps that will change too, some day). Some pieces of art I'll use for that website, some I'll post here too. I'm not looking for a way to get rich with my art. It's purely a source of inspiration for me. A new way to interact with artists, and a change to get more inspiration.

Overall: I'm interested in creativity, new ideas, art, work of others, learning new things, mindmapping, brainstorming, painting, writing and more.
website (dutch only):

I'm posting some of my work here. I stopped but recently I got an email. Asking permission to use my work. I was surprised. How can they find my work? It's in between that stuff of others. Mostly very good stuff too. But somehow people seem to find it. And, I'm happy to say, some like it. It's been used for a CD cover, a graphic in a history book and the cover of a book about the Netherlands. So I'll now post more of my work. If you want to use it, I'd be happy if you sent me an email, so we'll talk about it.

One step closer to .. what will come next

One step closer to .. what will come next

OK, it's done.. I started a study.. To be a writer. Now at last, I do have time to write about my work. So now I can play more, and learn. And perhaps, one day, I can let others read about my worlds. Whatever will come of it, I'll continue to play with creativity.. Paint, write and create other things. We'll see what will be the result of my work. I'm not sure, but I'm interested to watch and learn... so much to learn :-)

Play with Terragen Classic will give me more landscapes. But I'll not be learning much more. still have trouble adding more detail. Now a new version of the software is free. But... it's more hard to learn and it will set me back a few years. The results will be less and not that great at first, I'm afraid. So now I have to decide: do I make my stuff because I want results? Or do I just enjoy making landscapes and will I be content with that? For now, it's OK. Too bad I'm not able to add complete plants or animals or other stuff. But it's just fun to play with the software I know. Perhaps this will change some day and I'll try
