About

I am fascinated by light and the endless variations of atmospheric phenomena in the landscape. I am interested in low light conditions that occur mostly early in the day and in winter when the light is most subtle and intense. Each day begins a little differently offering infinite variety in light and colour. Clouds, fog, rain, and snow all produce varying levels of visibility from transparency to complete opacity. These are the elements of my environment and therefore of my work.
I am often moved by a sense of calmness of a place or of a certain moment and it is this sense of tranquility that I try to capture in my photographs. I make images as I discover them. In order to place myself in the most advantageous situation I rise before dawn and though I don’t know what to expect, I know the moment when it feels and looks right. No matter what transports me, the imagery is always grounded in the compositional possibilities found in natural settings.


I was born in Curaçao, raised in the Netherlands and currently live and work on the southshore of Nova Scotia, Canada.  For most of my life I have lived in coastal areas and the proximity of the ocean has a major influence on my work.   My formal education includes a Bachelors Degree in Art History from Leiden University. I studied photography at the Academy Amsterdam- Fotogram in the Netherlands. My work has been exhibited in The Netherlands, Germany, The United States and Canada and is in numerous international private collections.
