Creativity worldwide

Spreading creativity in South-Africa! Here we were making the butterfly from the book the hungry catterpillar. Happy I can share my knowledge and experience with these wonderful and talented kids. Y

Warhol woman – AoD SOLD

Acryl on canvas 50×50 I got an Art-on-Demand order from Robert, to make his girlfriend a portrait. I decided to go Andy Warhol style and I’m happy with the result!

Striped is the new black

Can you see what it is? It may have taken you more than one second to realise what you’re looking at. That’s what I like about this piece. (Hint: it’s a zebra’s butt). I made it when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to make for the “Little Africa” series. Ended up…

SOLD – Red Zebra 

Acryl on canvas (50×50) My second order! Someone liked the zebra from the series: “Little Africa” so much he orderd the exact same piece. I had fun making the same, yet a different painting. For example, I used a lot more white and also enlarged the zebra a little bit, bringing it to life. 

SOLD – little Africa part 4

Acryl on canvas (50×50)  The final piece of the African series (check out last posts). I personally love this piece the most, since elephants are such majestic creatures and I really feel like I put that aspect in it. 

SOLD – little Africa part 3

Acryl on canvas (50×50) Good news! The company that ordered the rhino and zebra was so happy with the result,  that they ordered two more. A lion and an elephant in the same style.  

SOLD – Little Africa part 2

Acryl on canvas (50×50) It was tough making a good picture with flash, that explains the weird angle. I loved making this painting though, because the colors go very well together. Plus, who doesn’t love zebras?

SOLD – Little Africa

FIRST ASSIGNMENT-ON-DEMAND! Acryl on canvas (50×50) Yesterday I got my first assignment from a company in Amsterdam(!). They requested 2 African animals for their meeting rooms. This painting is varnished and all good to go. Curious about the second animal? I’ll post a photo of the painting tomorrow.

African family

Aquarel on paper (42×30) I would like to share my first piece of art with you. This is where it all started, my love for art and my love for South-Africa. My parents just came back from South-Africa and brought this with them. It was a tiny statue, bought from the African locals. It was…

Skully skills

White polychromos Faber Castell pencil on A4 (21×30) I made this sketch as a study for faces and shadow working. This way I can make my drawings come alive. Let me know what you think!

From creepy mannequin to Space villain

Charcoal on paper (70×110) Last week’s art class we got a mannequin. We could go crazy and this is one of the 3 sketches I made that night. I loved the position she was in, kind of to the side but not all the way, so you could see all of her face. What I…

First blogpost

Today I got my official go! I got an email confirming that I will be going to South Africa, from January 23 till April 14. First thing I did was creating my website, with the intention to air it on the same day. Now I’ve got to start finishing some of my paintings, and more important,…
