New work

The forest is definitely the place where I go to relax and recharge my batteries. So it is only natural that a lot of my work features green hues and plants.

However having grown up in a small town surrounded by two rivers, water is also very important in my life. And long walks along the riverbank meadows always made me very happy.

So far the colour blue and water is not really present in my art. But I would like to change this because I find it always very calming to look at blue paintings. Especially when they show a lot of white areas as well. I love the contrast.

I am starting with a watercolour painting based on a photo of artist and wood worker Aleksandra Zee.

Snowday in London

This morning I woke up to a winter wonderland. I have never seen so much snow in London. The untouched ground in the back garden and the snow covered branches of the trees were a beautiful sight. I also love the crisp, clean air after a heavy snow fall. It feels rather cleansing to take a deep breath.

So I thought there is no better day than a snowday to share some of the flower paintings I created since Christmas. May they bring some colour into your day.
