In 1997 (at the age of 17) I got my first single-lens reflex camera. For me a new world opened up. Especially zooming in on details gave me the opportunity to discover and show worlds in worlds.
From 2003 to 2007 I was training Graphic Design at ArtEZ Arnhem (NL).
From 2011 to 2017 I made and sold artworks, and I participated in exhibitions.
First some photographs with the name ‘Lichtspel’ also ‘Reflecties’, translated as ‘Playing with Light’ also ‘Reflections’.
From 2012 a series called ‘Kleurenweelde’, later this turned into ‘Colourious|Photo Art’.
This website gives a presentation of my portfolio.
Currently I do not sell anything.

The artworks show my connection with the inner wealth of Colours.
In every aspect of material life, I always intuitively notice Colour.
Photography is the technique to show my view of the world.
I paint with light, by dancing with my camera. In my view, it results in a metamorphosis: from earthly reality to another dimension. A dimension in which Colour has her own stage. She transcends earthly reality.
The earthly subject matter, in which I have seen the Colour, was meant as a cause, and has no meaning in terms of content.
