I was born in 1950 in Drachten. Creativity has always been an important part of my life. I came to live in Lelystad in 1985 and I have been sculpting since 1998. I had lessons from Ton Willems, but I see myself more as an autodidact. Discovering new forms and techniques for myself is an important motivation and stimulus for me. I am very interested in people. My sculptures are therefore human figures. I am currently focusing on two techniques. I make sculptures in cast stone and bronze. Bronze offers many possibilities. In addition to full shapes, it is also possible to make slim detailed figures. My cast stone sculptures are more robust in shape and are characterized by round shapes and continuous clean lines, with a wink to reality. These images come into their own both indoors and outdoors.
