I have been painting throughout my life. When I was 12 I already had the oil brush in hand and I made all kinds of small paintings. It was only at a later age that I discovered water colour painting and surprised my sister José with a private edition of our book “Children’s thoughts”. In it I illustrated José’s poems with water colours. Her poems are about the ability to wonder. Publisher Terra picked up on this and together with José we published the book “Between Colour and Refracted Light”, of which more than a 1000 copies were sold.

The latest childerns book I illustrated is the book my dear friend Richard Lambertus made for his daughter Noa Lambertus and is called ‘the great adventure of Faith and Susie’. The book is about the 2 favourite cuddley toys of Noa.
