I'm a Belgian-Flemish hobbyist-artist in drawing/painting with traditional techniques (since about 13 years) and in photography (since my youth).
Professionally I'm working as a psychologist in a psychiatric unit of a general hospital.
I have a broad field of interest: culture, art, music, history, human (such as psychology and psychoanalysis) and natural sciences, astronomy and astrophotography, nature in general, travelling, etc. I love to explore and discover all kind of things... And I surely look for beauty and depth in all meanings. I consider my work fundamentally emotional and existential.
Concerning my drawings and paintings I have a special interest in the human form (and the female nude particularly) but also in portraits and scenery/landscapes. I draw/paint from life but also from photographs and out of my imagination.
During 4 years I attended a weekly evening class in drawing/painting from life nude models. I also did 5 years of official art school in painting (evening class, twice a week).
I'm aware I still have to learn a lot... I surely hope I still can make progress. So I appreciate your encouragement and support, but also your critique or advice...
