Based in North Berwick for the past twenty years, I was born in the Netherlands but grew up in Aberdeen where I graduated in architecture. I have always drawn and painted, fitting it around employment and other interests, which are mainly gardening related.
I find the views of the sea, the sky and the coast particularly inspiring, as well as the natural forms of plants, whilst my architectural training means I also find inspiration in the built environment. Quirky details appear to me – reflections and odd juxtapositions – I like to see the smaller rather than the bigger picture!
I work in a variety of media, but currently mainly alternate between painting in acrylics, pen & ink drawing, and mixed media/collage.
