My Bio

I'm a Belgian-Flemish hobbyist-artist in drawing/painting with traditional techniques (since about 12 years) and in photography (since many years).

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. 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. About 5 years ago I also started 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...

Hello Dirk!

I must admit that I'm not able anymore to enjoy DA as I did....formerly!The new-look DA isn't for me!

So I give up!

Anyway; so few are still interested in my work...

I like a lot all your last landscapes; and I'll not forget

your fem/aquacolors!

Think of me when you'll cook a ratatouille!

Best regards.

Michèle.

Bonjour Michèle,

Always glad to hear you again.

Be sure, I alwasy think of you when I prepare the ratatouille.

I agree, I've cursed the new DA too; after a while it got better; so perhaps you have to go through and keer more patience with yourself :-)

Thanks again for your kind words about my work. Indeed, Landscapes have clearly become my biggest interest (perhaps I got too old for the nudes :giggle: - 2 days ago I got granddad for the third time!).

O, I also have to mention that tonite I'll leave for a one week holiday in your beautiful country; we travel to the north side of the Alps (we don't have enough time to go to the real South); hope the weather is good enough..

Take good care, Michèle!!!

Many hugs :hug:

Au revoir!

Dirk
