Drawing & painting
Wherever I am, I love to draw. People, animals. But people are my main subject these days. With a minimum of lines, colors, catching the emotion, moment, situation, atmosphere. Humanity. Because I believe that, no matter what, we are one people. Autonomous work, editorial work for magazines, work made as an Artist in Residence as well as portraits of people / animals on commission. Line drawings, pen on paper, as simple and direct as they are or further elaborated with water colors.

Paramaribo Portraits
In September and October 2019 I have been working on a series of portraits as an Artist In Residence in Paramaribo, Suriname. Twelve of these portraits were on show at the  duo exhibition ‘Bezielde Lijnen’ with Rinaldo Klas, at Readytex Art Gallery during the month of October 2019 and one at the group exhibition Brasa Mi Ori at Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam, until January 17th  2020. You can have look at all portraits in this online album.

Sketchbook Japan
In July 2019 I traveled through Japan, bringing a sketchbook, my pen and my watercolors with me. After a few days, in Nara, I bought a small box of Japanese watercolors (kuretake gansai tambi). In the beginning I struggled with the boldness of this paint, but after a while I enjoyed experimenting and playing with these colors more and more and filled my sketchbook with them up until the last page. If you want to have a look at all fifty drawings, you can go to this online album. Beautiful prints can be ordered too.Schermafbeelding 2019-12-01 om 21.20.27.png

Mothers from the Rif (Northern Morocco)
It started with a portrait of Nasser Zefzafi’s mother, and a portrait I made for my dear friend and fellow artist, the poet Mimoun Essahraoui of his yemma. After that more commissions are coming in. Grateful to have the opportunity to portray and honor these beautiful, dear and brave women from Northern Morocco.
