Originally from the Netherlands, I am an artist and musician living in Manchester, UK in a house full of paint brushes and musical instruments. My work centres around portraiture. I trained as a printmaker and sculptor at Central St Martins College of Art in London .
Exhibitions (solo and collaborative) include the Crypt Gallery (London); Cass Art Foundation (London); The Bramhall (Birmingham); Mono (Manchester); SAC32; Koffee Pot (Manchester); Prague British School .
Composers and authors collection, with an strong emphasis on female composers. Exploring the balance between genders led to solo shows of portraits depicting obscure and lesser-known female composer.
I have a big soft spot for animals, which is irrepressibly expressed through my pet portraits.
