Give-away · 31. March 2018
Here is the first give-away! I'm making small (15x15cm) flower portraits for a new set of cards. I started with an ornithogalum which seemed just perfect for such small drawings. You can win this drawing and another one - which is still in the making ;-) through an Instagram "like and share to win".
Materials and media · 25. March 2018
Some years ago I started a project to force myself to draw without erasing too often or throwing away too often. To do this I used a roll of drawing paper instead of loose sheets and a ballpoint pen instead of a pencil. In the past months, seeing the different media and materials people use during the courses, I have been longing for more than just a ballpoint pen to draw with. So, while I keep using a ballpoint pen for virtually all my drawings, I will embark on a new project soon.
Learn to draw · 17. February 2018
One of the interesting things of teaching others is that it means reflecting on your own practice too. I usually start drawing right away and this has its value because often it brings me to unexpected results, but on more than one occation I came to regret some choices.
Behind the Scenes · 10. February 2018
We have moved!! Since the first week of February all the courses and workshops will take place in the atelier at LOOkatie 364 in Mariahoeve (The Hague)
Behind the Scenes · 13. January 2018
Here is a peek behind the scenes of today’s tidying up. I have collected a remarkable amount of (hopefully) interesting and useful objects from nature over the past months. Mostly plants, but not only. Most of them come from walks we made. Some I have bought to draw and then dried.
Welcome · 06. January 2018
Having postponed this for some time ;-) I’m starting the year determined to share more of what I do. I’ve turned my occasional emails to those interested in my work into a regular newsletter. Every month I’ll share an update about what I’m up to (work, courses, etc.) as well as a small give away action.
