People fascinate me. Especially the African women and their culture, they are my source of inspiration. But also Buddhism intrigues me tremendously 

Africa's continent is a joy for the eye. Sad enough torn apart by struggle for life, however the other side is, hope and love. It is all reflected in the inhabitants themselves. To understand Africa you  need to hear with new ears and see with new eyes .

My big challenge is to express this all in my sculptures. Their stately posture, resoluteness, despite the many hardships they have to endure. To shape these figures also means a form of meditation to me and in combination with my feelings gives my art a powerful appearance. They are images with a soul.

Each sculpture is unique. 

 

I consider:

All people are beautiful, each face is unique. If one can give love, your whole person will radiate it. In my art this is clearly expressed, I actually try to catch the essence .
