Welcome to my website. As long as i can remember, drawing and painting has been my greatest passion. As a professional artist I am specialized in portraying people and animals. It's a challenge to immortalize the charactertrait of a person or animal on paper or linen. The eyes are the most important, they have to show the character, and capture the soul of the person or animal portrayed. I regularly make drawings and paintings of people and pets who have passed away.
I make these realistic portraits based on photos with oil paint and pastel chalk. I also paint Christmas balls with a portrait of a pet or person on it. Here you will find a selection of my work, and the available possibilities to create the portrait you wish. In addition to drawing and painting, I also make free work with oil paint, acrylic paint, pastel chalk and colored pencil. You can follow my work on my blog. When you use the search function and choose, for example, "Dog", you will quickly see all the related work and updates i have posted.
Do you want to have a portrait or drawing made, or have you seen something on my site that you are interested in? Feel free to contact me, also if you want more information or if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help or give advice in any way i can. Together we can determine your exact wishes and desired details. The composition, technique used and the colour of the background are the most important to get right. I always continue to work until both i and the customer are satisfied with the result.
Timmie is an adopted dog from Spain. Soon this sweet dog will also be immortalized on a drawing. More on this later.
Thankfully and with love I have been able to make this beautiful pastel drawing 40x50cm in commission. This time from Labrador Sina who unfortunately past away. As a precious memory, this pastel drawing from Sina will be given to the family. With the permission of the client I can already publish this drawing.
