​​I grew up in the Netherlands and have lived in Upstate New York since 1992. When faced with the choice of a career path the toss-up was between nursing school and art school. Nursing won out, but I always kept drawing and painting. I took workshops and classes and have been painting consistently the past few years, showing my work in several juried shows. There is never an end to learning, and you just never know where it leads to.

I paint mostly landscapes, and often find my inspiration while hiking in this beautiful area where we live. I make sketches and paint outside whenever I can. Being in the actual environment helps to make me feel more connected to what I’m painting. Sometimes I will finish a painting right there, while other times I will finish in the studio. I will often do larger paintings in the studio using the initial painting and sketches. I try to emphasize what initially drew me to the scene and try to convey the feeling I had when I was struck by the scene. Light moves quickly, and any scene will look very different just an hour later. I hope to convey my love for nature and the beauty around us in my paintings.
