I prefer to work traditionally, mainly with watercolor. I scan these paintings in order to digitally edit and optimize them. 

Characteristic of my work is a fairly realistic style combined with more painterly backgrounds. I also like to use extreme perspectives, because this gives extra dynamism to an image. 

My first picture book 'De maan is overal dezelfde' will be published at the beginning of 2024.
