I’m a Dutch water and surf artist and Zandvoort (the Netherlands) local.

When asked why I‘m so attracted to the ocean, I start smiling. The answer? A dive into the big blue resets me. It is my physical challenge after a day at the office. It is my favourite place to hang out. It is where I catch up with local surf buddies. And it has now became my creative inspiration. In the water people are so pure, so photogenic. I guess water does work!

I believe in the importance of sustainability and our responsibility for clean oceans. I would like for my photography and illustrations to create awareness of this. In the future, I hope to expand my work to include projects that specifically support the health of the oceans.
