I was born in Deventer, The Netherlands, in 1947 and had my introduction to art at the Art Academy ‘Psychopolis’ in The Hague. I moved to Suffolk in 1997 and now live in Hythe, on the Kent coast. I also spend a good part of the year in Normandy and visit my home country on a regular basis. I have had exhibitions in France, Cambridgshire and Suffolk. Prints of mine travelled around East Anglia in the Red Dot mini-prints tour.
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 the 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!
