Hello and welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I am a visual artist who enjoys creating colorful abstract paintings and this blog shows you my journey to creating art.

Painting is my passion, I'm probably painting right at this moment.


Works on Yupo paper

They are finally ready… 5 small works on yupo paper.

It took me quite some time to finish these, but recently I managed to do the final tweaks and they are ready now!

I started those ages ago, and left them unfinished, didn’t quite knew what to do with them. Then a few weeks ago, I found them, more or less by accident, in a pile of other unfinished works on paper. They looked promising, and I decided to add a few lines and shapes of color. I started to like where they were heading… and I responded. They are done now!


My studio in Spain

My studio in Spain – finally ready!

My studio in Spain that we completed last summer is finally up-and-running. This holiday, I can really start trying it out… After a short ‘setup’ of my paints and painting tools, I am ready to roll!

Here are a few works on small canvasses and paper. I really enjoy the short bursts of creativity, painting a few hours, then a walk near the sea, enjoy a delicious ‘menu del dia’ at noon, then again a bit of ‘messing around in my new world, no stress, just let it go… you get the picture…



Series of small works on stone paper/panel

I just finished a series of small paintings on stone paper, which I glued onto wood panels.

The stone paper is very smooth and adheres beautifully to the wood panels that I first prepared with two layers of gesso.

The sides are painted in a neutral color in order to have a nice finish.

Invitation: I am guest artist at the ‘Open House’ event of Lydia Smets

The last weekend of October, I’m the guest artist at Lydia Smets’ Open House event.

Lydia creates unique and surprising glass sculptures with her own modern glass kiln. Some of her works can be viewed at
She opens her house and atelier to the public that weekend and invited me to exhibit some of my paintings for that occasion, which I will gladly do.

We invite you to pay us a visit !

Experimental studies

I made tens of them… only a few make it to staying…

Here are some of the studies I’m happy with.
Soon they will be available on Instagram

Studio practice

The last weeks, I am focusing on experimental studies and color palettes.

I experiment with a limited palette on a lot of different sizes of paper and all kinds of paper.

My studio is a big mess and I run out of space because everything needs to dry, so time to write this short post and upload some pictures…

My art studio in Spain is ready

During this summer holiday, my hubby and I prepared my art studio in our house in Spain so that I can also paint while we are there.

Here are some photos of work in progress that I did when the studio was ready. I started on plain paper, with rubbish quality of paint, because I don’t have quality art materials there yet. It was just to see how I could organize everything, working in this new environment. I must say I am very pleased with it!


Yesss… my new storage racks installed

Finally, I have custom sized storage racks installed by a local carpenter.

I am very happy with them!

Now I can easily store my paintings and keep them separated from each other. This was a big problem with the previous storage solution, where I needed to put something in between works to avoid clinging to each other. It was not easy to take a painting out to show it to people, but now… I just slide it out!
