My inspiration

I get my inspiration from many things like my surroundings, the people in my life, event in personal life and society. I'm a christian artist en want to include God in the creative process. So I seek Him for ideas, images en inspiration. This is also what I would call 'prophetic painting'.

I grew up in a creative stimulating environment and learned to appreciate everything creative! I prefer working with contrasting colors. The use of color is very important to me and I try to find new and exciting ways to keep exploring that. I tend to combine impressionistic and abstract images with a realistic view.

My inspiration also comes from the things that I and others experience. And I find that there is beauty in nature and in people. Besides that, I love interesting perspectives and try to capture these with photos. Down below you can see some photos that inspired me from my home in the Netherlands and while I was traveling.
