The desire to paint and create is always with me. With practice and advancing aplicable
knowledge, the joy and gratification increases!
Born in Holland afforded me the privilege to visit many museums displaying the Dutch
and other European Masters.
Early on my main interest lay with the expressive and colorful painters such as Van
Gogh, Lautrec and Chagall. Their colorful combinations and expressed emotions in
their work have always interested and amazed me.
My watercolor paintings are truly from the heart. They are products of combinations
of observations and emotions these observations generate.
My teachers, past and present, are basically art books and responses and comments
of the people that see my artwork.
