I was born in the Netherlands and moved to UK as a teenager to study art. I lived again on the continent & travelled to various countries including Morocco, Mexico & USA. Predominantly a portrait artist, the style of my work is mostly traditional & realistic but not photo-realistic. I specialise in portraits of children, adults, pets. I also paint florals & landscapes. Favourite mediums: watercolour, colour pencil, pastel, acrylic, oil.
