About

Since I had a creative epiphany at the Burning Man festival in september 2017, I enrolled myself at the Art Academy of Mortsel, Antwerp and started sketching and painting, something I had not done for 30 years.  I did make 3D artwork on the computer some 15 years before. I taught myself to draw in 6 months and haven’t stopped drawing and painting since.

I live in Antwerp with my girlfriend and 2 young adult boys. At home I have two workplaces. Downstairs is my ‘office’ where I make websites for clients. Each day when work is finished, I rush upstairs to my atelier where I draw and paint figurative art, mainly portraits. I often try to create something visually striking to convey some sort of strong emotion.
