Though not exclusively a printmaker, I've always made prints in addition to my other artworks. Usually, I make relief prints —typically linocuts — because I can cut and print them without the need for presses or equipment. I like the direct physical process of carving and the bold, sometimes rough qualities of the print.

Originally from the Netherlands, I’ve been in Los Angeles making art for many years. Art has occupied me from my earliest recollection. As a youngster, I would travel to the public library, return with 10 art books, devour them, then return for 10 more. Though I never had any formal training, I educated myself through visits to museums and galleries, and, of course, by doing the work. I soon learned that every artist has to invent and reinvent painting for themselves. My work has been exhibited at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Coagula Curatorial, Long Beach Museum of Art, Autry/Southwest Museum, Avenue 50 Studio, Laguna Beach Museum of Art, Purdue University Galleries, Armory Center for the Arts and many other venues. It has been documented in numerous publications and catalogs, including the Los Angeles Times, the Hammer Museum’s Graphite, Arts + Architecture, Poets and Artists, LA Weekly, The Hand, Full Blede and Artweek.
