In 1980 I moved from the Netherlands to Curacao, where I started my ceramic studio. Since I won the first prize in a photo competition, in 1985, I also exhibit my photographs.


I am not interested in telling a story. I will not try to give a complete overview.  I hope to make people more aware of the beautiful images around them.


I am fascinated by material. The process of erosion and damage.   The contrast between skins. I make use of this in rhythmic compositions or forms. My work is about harmony, balance, tranquility. 


In my photographs you can see I am a ceramist at heart.
