I have known my passion for drawing and painting from childhood. After studying Economics and a job in business, after my second son was born (two daughters also followed), I decided to start painting professionally. With the development of a website for my flower paintings, even the name flower paintings.nl was still available at the time, my paintings became known to a larger audience more quickly. Since then I have exhibited a lot and made commissioned work. Many flower paintings also found their final destination worldwide via my website.
