I was born in The Netherlands but moved to South Africa when I was very young. To cut a long story short It was great , it was a great country. I loved to be able to walk barefoot anywhere, going to the beach with friends and stay there until the sun was gone. Loved the weather there and loved the animals still living out in the wild. To me that is life. We should really take care of the wildlife because soon they will be gone if we don't stop the killing of elephants, the Rhino and the lion ect. I finally decided to go back to my roots The Netherlands. I now live in Friesland in between the dairy cows and frisian horses. This is a beautiful part of Holland and I love it here. I have a studio where I can paint and make music with great views that’s where I get inspiration from for lots more painting yet to come.
