Hi there! 
This is a small update. Last weekend I went to the Christmas Market at the St John & St Philip’s Church in The Hague. It was an English market - with Santa and all - and vendors from different countries. Here is an impression. I promised a better picture and I’m afraid the picture isn’t a good one yet, but it is a liiittle little bit better… It is always such a nice experience to see that not only parents but children themselves (!) are very enthousiastic about my work, and I think this time the bags were favourite.
Probably I will stay away for a while again, for I will prepare me for the next market: the “Kerstmarkt” at the Grotemarkt here in The Hague, on December 19th. More information about it coming soon!!!

On October 21st I had the pleasure to participate of the first I'M MARKT. A design and arts market in The Hague, organized by ateliercomplex De Besturing at their own (beautiful!) location, as part of the I'm Binck festival program. Sorry about the picture, I totally forgot to make decent pictures so this is the only one I have. Next time I'll make better pictures. I promise! You can get an impression of the event here.

the beginning

It was the summer of 2009 and my first child was about to be born. Despite of having a painter diploma I hadn't been painting for a long time, for I was busy studying photography and then working as a photographer and doing other things. But I wanted to have some animals in his room he could wave goodnight every evening, so I made this one:

Rode vogel, 2009, watercolour and ink

 ...and an elephant, a rhino, two whales, and this one:

Cocodrilo, 2009, watercolour and ink

... and an anteater, a sloth and a  manatee. Soon, it became every night's ritual to say goodbye to everyone of them, while naming their names and making voices that answered back.
Working as a photographer, I missed painting and making stuff with my own hands. And I also noticed I urgently needed some practice! So making the paintings for my son's room was the perfect pretext to start practicing again. And, given that I also missed doing batik - I used to do a lot of batik during my last years at the art faculty - why not painting and batiking at the same time? Doing this, which I enjoy very much, has become a project at which I hope to do things better each time. The project has a name and a website:

Welcome everyone!
