I have always been drawing that's why I went to the artschool of the Moller Instituut in Tilburg (Holland)
In 2002 I was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease.Good medication and the fact that I dont have tremors, so i can still do my art, help me through this. In 2011 I became a member of the JKPP group on flickr.com. Its a virtual group of artists, founded by Julia Kay, from all over the world who make portraits of eachother. The portraits in my book are of them - except the front, that is a SP and the back, that are my children.
I cherish the day that I became a member of this wonderful group of people (JKPP stands for Julia Kay's Portrait Party ) and I am very grateful for the opportunity to portray such a variety of people :)
