Born in Deventer, The Netherlands, I had my introduction to art at the Art Academy ‘Psychopolis’ in The Hague. In 1997 my wife Elizabeth and I moved to the UK and we now live in Hythe, on the splendid East Kent coast. We also spend a good part of the year in Normandy and I visit my home country on a regular basis. I have had exhibitions in France, Cambridge and around Suffolk and lately in Hythe and Folkestone.
My website shows work made over the last two decades. It brings together the people, the animals and the towns in the three countries between which I divide my time. Over the years I moved away from painting to woodblock printing, for the sheer physical satisfaction of cutting and working with tough material. Lately I’ve taken up the iPad, an endlessly versitile sketchbook, easy to carry with me while on the move. Modern Gislée techniques produce the most fabulous prints!
