About me

Excuse me: I write in English. My knowledge of the German language is horrible. I can understand it very well, but I do not dare to write or speak it, as I am sure I will make many grammattical errors.
In daily life I am a professional visual artist (lyrical abstract acrylic paintings) and illustrator in the Netherlands. Beside painting and drawing I also use photography to express my feelings. My photographic work is in general less artistic than my other work.
I am a Nikon addict; almost 30 years I am using Nikon products. After the Nikkormat, the FM and the F-3 I am using the analogue F-100 and the digital Coolpix 5700. In 2006 also the D70s arrived. And in 2008 the D300 came.
My favorite subjects are animals (especially reptiles and amphibians -and our cat ) and landscapes. The Scottissh Highlands are my favorite spot. On the other hand I do some aircraft-photography. I prefer antique aircraft (i.e. until 1960).
My lenses (all Nikkors) vary from 24 - 400 mm (analogue).
My paintings are exhibited mostly in Holland, and sometimes in Belgium, Germany and Britain.
More information about my paintings and drawings can be obtained at or .

    Guten Morgen,
    wie ich sehe, fotografierst du auch Libellen.
    Da habe ich vielleicht einen interessanten Tipp für dich.
    Lies einfach mal meine "Profil-Infos", speziell die Passage: Achtung, Libellen-Fotowettbewerb, nach.

    Viele Grüße aus Mainz,

    Thanks Buddy
    The super translation has been added and I owe you one - if ever you need something translated to - or from - the Canadian language, I'll be keeping an eye on the midnight choir and will remain at your service :-))
    Warmest regards from Canada's coldest place

    Hello Bart,

    There are a lot of amazing pictures on your page. Many animal photos are very exceptional, especially the shots of Mozes are rather different frome general cat photos.
    ( By the first impression I also like your paintings.)
    I hope you understand my funny English.

    Greetings Iris
