My childhood took place largely in the Kennemer dunes of North Holland. For me a world that continues to this day is decisive for my path of life . Nature in all its facets, from the unpredictable forces of the North Sea to the mystic morning mist in the valleys and the vast plains of the underlying polder. A living encyclopedia of flora and fauna, as yet untouched ... and for me in my childhood a world trying to translate in images. I am a observer, firstly from a sensory perception and as the time passed developed and grew the spectrum to an increasing stratification.This was fueled by my education at d'Witte Lelie in Amsterdam, followed by 35 years of photography and 3 years Fontys School studying Visual Arts in Tilburg. Nowadays my inner child takes me to deeper experiences and I travel along the path of nature ,captured in ancient cultures, science, philosophy and Art in a fascinating world full of special cross-references. Wonderment knows no bounds. I invite you to experience the reflections of my work as a renewed encounter, a reunification with your own deepest feelings... '
