Making 100 Waves

My favourite medium is oil paint, which I sometimes combine with other materials.

I studied Art at the St Lucas Institute in high school, followed by Interior design at the Academy In Antwerp and a Master Painter course at the Meylemans School for professional painters. After my studies I ran my own painting business in Belgium; specialising in marble and wood imitations and trompe l’oeil.

This background enables me to paint with great details and precision.

I have always had a passion for sailing since a young age, and after having sailed between the Mediterranean, Caribbean, North America, The indian ocean and South east Asia, the sea is my biggest inspiration, the different colours, movement and moods of the ocean reflect in my work.

My favourite medium is oil paint, which I sometimes combine with other materials.

Because of my life time passion for the sea I decided at the beginning of 2014 to start a project called #Making100Waves to raise more awareness to the importance of keeping our oceans clean. A percentage of each sale goes to marine conservation.

AsociacionOndine.org is an organisation based in Mallorca, because I spend a lot of my time there, it seems like the perfect platform to help make a better environment for everybody.
