I work in Tilburg, Netherlands
As a child I drew movies on paper for 'projecting' through the hole of the dining room chair. Especially distant countries, great wonders of the world and cartoons came over. Later on I was interested in the Illustrated Classics, a perfect way to meet international literature in comic form. At the drawing Academy I learned to combine photography with silkscreen. With some students founded a screen printing company and printed posters for home occupiers, anti-war demos, political forums and music performances. It gave me the opportunity to develop my own work, collages of mixed mediums on large wood plates. With a loan I bought in 1993 a second hand Mac IIx and learned Photoshop and design programs, untill deep in the night. The dark room was not longer necessary, it's a long time since I've smelled fixative! Nowadays the city government, social cultural institutions and small business are my principals for photography, bookcover and newsletters design.
