My Bio
Although I was painting and drawing a lot in my childhood, on plastic art I am completely self-taught. From early age I studied precisely the old and modern art of painting, the history as well as the techniques (as you can see in my scripture ‘over-stromingen', only in Dutch). On the area of expression I followed a lot of courses: on yoga, massage, dance and body expression, voice, drama, clown theatre, mixed forms of expression… I also gave lesson in yoga and dance, mixed expression combined with meditation, for children as well as adults. I love people a lot, meditation, yoga, dance, singing, drawing, painting, poetry en prose, and I love my computer as well. I work in oil, water colour, pastel, graphite or mixed technique. Since some years I also create plastic art on the computer in different programs. My digital art can be figurative as well as abstract. Abstract are also the mandalas. Some of my works are first made by hand, in different techniques, then put together, mixed and further developed on the computer. Also the psychological site in the human being is of great interest to me, as you see in my interest in Jung and dreams. You can also have a look at my work: handmade, digital 2D and 3D, mandalas, photgraphy... on my website

I've changed now to oil painting on linen. Since I respect a safe drying time between layers, there is a break now in my uploads. Soon first work shall be finished. I had been painting oils for many years, before my digital period. Now I enjoy them again very much. I can't stand terpentine or any replacement, so I did came on Winsor&Newton water soluble oils. I'm very happy with it, but the colour palette is quite limited (and I only use cat. I ASTM). I'm a colour pigment maniac so I use many other colours too, mainly from Mussini,  my old tubes. Most of them are not made anymore, a lot is changed to other pigments (often with the same na

End of 2017 I quite suddenly wanted to paint again with pigments, with materials. Didn't know exactly why, during the darkest days of the year it is not quite logic. But for some time I got eye troubles and that is gone now. Reason enough for this change. I painted digitally for some years. Although I started with 3D constructions, I preferred the electronic drawing tablet at the end.   I don't want to evaluate digital painting or material painting, for me all these are just mediums: oil, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, digital... I don't believe in superior mediums, a pencil drawing or digital painting can be as good as an oil.   I stopped to

About 3000 years ago somebody wrote in the Mahabharata: "nothing is on itself fully good or fully bad". It surely suits internet. A great advantage of the internet is artists and art lovers can exchange their favourites. All art lovers admire the ancient paintings and a lot of the moderns, mainly from prehistoric cave paintings up to abstract painting. For what follows then, a lot of people have very fragment ideas. They all know pop-art and the cans putted in the museum. But they have little idea of other evolutions such as hyperrealism or fantastic art. The rubbish now largely filling our museums of contemporary art makes us blind for the

Amazing Gallery! thanks for sharing
Hey, your 3D art is amazing! I'm actually trying to achieve the same thing for a point-and-click game I'm making as part of the Myst universe. I have a dev blog at if you're interested in following it.
