Born in the Netherlands near Amsterdam, the witnessing of the Nazi occupation as a very young boy made an everlasting impression on him and became a benchmark for all other things to come.
Studied horticulture and agriculture and worked in that field. During his draft into the military service, he met artists andpeople interested in art, this set him off in working in the field of art. A lot of this desire came through in his garden designs.
Married a girl named Margretha, settled in Ottawa, has a family of 4 and running a garden design (hands on) company.
Attended the Ottawa School of Art for several sessions. Has been influenced by Ecole de Paris art movement (International, abstract, vivid colours) and American Art Movement.Lives on a farm near Ottawa.
For this show he has made several objet trouves found objects sculptures, these are derived from old farm, crafts and utility objects, leftovers quite often of my stock as an antique dealer.Some of these no doubt are influenced by other artists gone before.
