About Me


My Background

After my studies I started my maritime career but due to family reason I had to stop sailing the seven seas and instead studied at the graphic art academy. After years of experience gained as industrial photographer, after my retirement I returned to my first love, painting and drawing which gives more freedom to fantasy then photography. During my career i made many photographs which I use now as a base for my artworks.Like many artists I have often turned to nature and history for my subject matter and like to paint the many moods of nature or the changes in urban life.

Also old masters such as the Brueghels, Jacob Ruysdael or Avercamp often  influence  my works.

When I was active as photographer I lived, besides in my home country the Netherlands, in Italy, France and Spain. Since a few years I live in the Philippines.


My Medium

I use acrylic paint, pastels and pencils as my main medium.


My Inspiration

I enjoy reading and learning about the stile of painters such as Parmigianino

and Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

Art as an investment

Investing in art is growing in popularity. According to Deloitte' 2018 Art & Finance Report total U.S. investment in art is expected to reach over $ 2.8 trillion by 2026.

Does investing in Art Make sense for your Financial Plan?First you must think about what kind of art you'd like to invest in. For instance are you attracted to contemporary artists? Or the Old Masters? Do you want to invest in well known artists or are you hoping to discover the next Rembrandt?

Will you invest in Drawings? Or are you interested in Oil paintings?

You do not need a degree in fine art or art history to become an art investor but at a minimum you should have a basic understanding of mediums, styles and artistic eras.

Another very important point is: How much can you reasonably afford to invest.

In the high end of the market  a work of art can easily sell for millions of dollars. According to experts in 2017 was the average auction price for an traditional piece of art $ 27.600. If that is not realistic for your investment budget you may need to consider lower cost alternatives, such as purchasing art from local or on line galleries. On line galleries offer access to up-end-coming artists as well as established artists at prices that may be more appropriate for a beginning art investor's budget.

From a return perspective, art is like any other investment and there's a certain degree of risk involved.  According to Deloitte, the biggest risk to the global art market are political and economic uncertainty. Instability in these areas can affect artwork pricing and trading. But art has a low correlation to investment instruments such as stocks, meaning it has the potential to remain stable or increase when the stock market declines.

Collecting is an art.

Collecting is an art. Because  collecting art needs expertise. My ideal interlocutor is the art lover who is well aware that his or her art collection  reflects ones culture, style and sensibility. A person used to developing strategies to achieve his aims.  I like to work with  art lovers who are creating a highly prestigious collection and with companies that want to furnish executive spaces in a manner that benefits the image of refinement  and power they intend to convey to the public.

The true art lover has trained his eyes to see art and understand all its poetry, with intelligence and sensitivity.
