2018

Nude with butterfly, oil and gold leaf.

Mermaid near waterfall

2017

This is one of those paintings that start out with paint put on at random; I then look for the image in the paint to unfold. This can happen fairly fast, but sometimes it takes more time- in other words, it's a process that cannot be forced.

Enchanted forest

1993

Reclining nude in a magic forest- dream or fairy tale..?

Veiled one

1993

Zebra's on terrace

1989

For the zebra's I had models; the landscape emerged gradually from an abstract pattern.

The path

1987

One of the paintings evolving from a pattern of at random put on paint; I never know what will appear.

Sfinx

2000

This fantasy-landscape emerged from a pattern of paint, put on at random; thus I sometimes start a painting . I then try to recognize forms I see - a bit like one can imagine all kind of things when looking at the clouds. Often these paintings become fantasy-like landscapes, for which I had no plan in advance.

This painting was inspired by a sculpture of queen Nefertiti; the landscape formed itself around her.

Circle of life

1979

In this painting I aimed to depict the lifecycle of woman; because the moon is said to have influence on some rhythms of life I painted her from new to full. The painting can be hanged in various ways: on the wall in four different ways straight, and 4 diagonal- and also on the ceiling.
