Born in Auckland New Zealand

Lives & works in Sydney Australia and Auckland New Zealand


I am a child of a Dutch Mother and a New Zealand father and as such I am a child of the world. Travel and colour have been my thing after my motherhood responsibilities faded.

My passions are travel and colour, my travel being reflected in my abstract urban landscapes where colour and scale are dominate features. My art shows my positive approach to life.

I like to express myself and show the luck and good fortune my life represents. Colour is an explosive way of portraying positiveness and beauty, which is a great way for me to experiment.

Due to travel and substantial injuries I have been away from my passion for over 6 years however with my health back in tip-top shape I have be able to resumed my practice. I use expressive and explosive colour to emphasize these aspects of my life.
