Miniatures of everyday stillness, that's what all my work is about. Whether I write, paint or do research. I graduated from the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) on a book of hours inspired by medieval manuscripts and Persian miniatures. And I still like to do meticulous work. I observe to the smallest detail and always try to portray things as faithfully as possible. The most exciting subject for me is human absence in a man-made environment.
