Born in Holland. I moved to South Africa with my family and attended art school in Durban. After I got married, we moved to England.
I have been painting and drawing as long as I can remember. I've always been passionate about animals and nature and many of my paintings reflect this.
I worked in advertising and for Children's book publishers.I have illustrated a number of children's books which have been published. In addition, I also paint personalised menu boards for the American Airforce stationed in Frankfurt. I now reside in Kent and paint and draw from my converted loft which has inspirational views across the Swale towards the Isle of Sheppey. I have exhibited my works at various galleries including The Mall galleries, London, Broadstairs Gallery, The Horsebridge and Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, London.
I'm a Full Member of Society of Feline Artists (S.O.F.A), and a member of the Faversham Art Society.
