After graduating from the Academy of Arts and a Master Class in Design (Artez)
I left Holland for France to discover the world of Parisian elegance which influenced my work as an art-director, illustrator and painter.
I developed ties with Japan when a Japanese company requests my artwork;
this marks the beginning of a fifteen-year work-relation with Japan.
It’s in Tokyo where I was introduced to a discipline that will become a strong source of inspiration for my work:
The art of woodblock prints, delicate work of fine lines on off-white paper.
My techniques vary with a predilection for the association of abstraction and precision, interlacing fine pencil lines with watercolor or oil paint.
Projects for numerous cosmetic brands such as Clarins, L'Oréal, Lancôme,etc In which
I illustrated the beautified universe of women.
