I was born and raised in the Netherlands. From 1995 to 2002 I studied painting and teaching at the Minerva arts academy in Groningen. After my studies, I moved to Gothenburg and a few years later to Stockholm, where I had my first solo exhibitions at the gallery Överkikaren and worked in a studio at WIP: sthlm in Årstaberg.
Since 2012 I live and work in the Skåne town of Eslöv. I combine my artistry with teaching arts and try to keep up with at least one solo exhibition per year.
In addition I work regularly with various art associations and exhibit through them as well as open up my own exhibition every year during the skåne Easter art event.
