Earth without art is just Eh
I help you find your way in the world of art and creativity.
Without beauty and meaning, life is dull and gray.
By fueling your creative fire you get your vision on paper, on canvas or on the wall!
Done with your thirteen-in-a-dozen Ikea painting? Or tired of the holiday photo from 6 years ago?
In collaboration with you I can make a painting that will open your heart.
– Where you discover something new every time.
– That reminds of a favorite place in the world
– Or a place of peace inside yourself.
Every day, remind yourself of what is important to you and what makes you happy.
Atlas of the Ocean
Waves arise far at sea. A small breeze can cause a small ripple. That ripple grows into a wave. Such wave currents can grow into huge big waves unhindered by land. Only when the gulf stream encounters shallow water does the lower part of the water slow down. The top still moves fast, the water topples over and turns over.
Isn’t that a nice metaphor for obstacles that you encounter in life?
A small ripple becomes a big wave, the flow accelerates and everything moves in one direction, an obstacle, you go over it, you fly, you float … or you fall. You come down to earth, sometimes sobered and realistic, often wiser and richer. After which you rejoin in the big stream. And everything flows again. I have expressed this feeling in the collection Atlas of the Ocean.
tlas of the Ocean is a collection of works that all have a relationship with the grandeur and power of the ocean.
The work gives a feeling of freedom and connectedness, and seeks the connection with a greater power. The name Atlas refers to Greek mythology where Atlas was given the task of ensuring that the earth (Gaia) and the sky (Uranus) could not reach each other. The oceans on earth ensure that all continents are connected to each other and connect many deeper layers of the earth.

A creative mind is stubborn, inquisitive, does not give up easily, makes discoveries and is open to new inspiration.
You are not only creative if you can draw well, or can draw something exactly. Creativity exists in your mind. It is a way of thinking. It can sometimes take a while before the flame turns into a bonfire, but everyone can open up to think creatively.
As humanity we have come a long way by approaching every challenge or obstacle in a creative way. Einstein said it already: “The real characteristic of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination. Whether you are creative by inventing sliced bread or giving someone (or yourself) a good feeling by making a beautiful drawing or painting that doesn’t matter …
