For many years already I am inspired by River Amstel, its surrounding polders, waters and pools. This always changing magnificent and unique Dutch landscape has inspired many painters.The exihibition at Buitenplaats Wester-Amstel gave me the opportunity to review the area again and prepare a series of oil paintings and watercolours, which found their inspiration in early morning hours in spring.

In Curaçao I exhibited in 2017 at Landhuis Bloemhof a series of paintings and collages of the historic Inner City of Willemstad and its surroundings. Surprising coloursettings and peculiar architecture inspired me to paint compositions on the edge of figurative and abstraction.
