I reside in Danbury, Ct. I was born in Belgium and moved to the United States in 1973.
I started painting in 1976. My primary medium is acrylic paint. I also enjoy photography, collages and ink drawings.
My work mostly expresses itself in an abstract-realistic form. My experiences, places, people, events and especially animals compel me to show them through my paintings. I’ve always been fascinated by the combination and the relationship of color.
As a self-taught artist I have enriched my awareness in classes at the Putnam Arts Council with artist Jeanne DeMotses. At Duchess Community College and at Arts on the Lake with artist Alex Shundi.
I’m a member of the Katonah Museum Artist Association in Katonah, NY, the Putnam Arts Council in Mahopac, NY and of Arts on the Lake in Kent, NY.
My work has shown at different galleries in Westchester and Putnam counties. Including a solo show at the Somers Public Library, NY. The Kent Public Library in Kent,NY. The Third floor gallery at the Mahopac Public Library in Mahopac,NY and the Danbury Public Library in Danbury Ct.
A group show at the Hendrick Hudson Public Library in Montrose NY and also at the Mahopac Public Library in Mahopac,NY.
My inspiration comes from the emotions evoked by the world around me. Many of my works are anchored in my heart’s home, Belgium, my surroundings and especially animals.
“ Paint is my vocabulary and the canvas my story”
I always love to follow the direction my paintings take me.
I bring my creations from realism to abstract realism.
This is my mind’s art!
