I´m a 47 y. old Dutch writer/ artist and entering DeviantArt was an early birthday present to myself.
Although the bodywork is littered with heavy dents and scratches and my life experience compares to that of an 80+ year old, I´m still young at heart and have a powerful and very naughty mind.
Still shielding the kid in me, I feel not a day older than 35... I even look that way.
A writer and storyteller from a pretty young age on, I always enjoyed it when people hung on my lips.
I developed it over the years and gained confidence to eventually put some stories on paper.
Drawing interests took a much longer time to emerge (being a slow learner at the time), but I got the knack and started loving it. It ended up as one of my most favoured things to do, and I drove more than one teacher into madness with it...
I became proper grafic training at school from the early to mid 90´s to become a 2D Designer and I gained about half a decade experience in it.
In 2000 disaster struck and I was in survival mode till early 2010 when I was involved in a heavy accident that nearly killed me. It took me almost 5 years to recover from most of that.
Late 2010 / 2011 when I made up my mind about the direction I wanted to go, I started training again.
3D Design and Animation, because that´s also part of my passion. It took me some time to get the curve, but I succeeded and was happy about it. Again, a lot of experience came from it.
Now that my body functions again as it should I want to deploy my Arts and have fun working on them.
I was developing my writing even in this dark period of time and have some stories about ready now.
As for my drawings, lots of it got destroyed in time, but I´ll look if I can find some surviving nice ones.
And of course I´ll start working on new material.
