Welcome to my blog. Every other week I'll write about my artworks. And my other activities.

  • Nothing is more precious than inner peace. A souvenir from Suriname.

    Nothing is more precious than inner peace. I came to this realization after I recently visited my homecountry Suriname again. It wasn't the only realization I had. I also learned about wealth. The kind of wealth that cannot be expressed in money. I've also..
  • The inspiration behind my photo art explained in 3 steps.

    Om te weten waar je heen gaat moet je weten waar je vandaan komt.'Dit gezegde grijpt naar de essentie van mijn nieuwe kunstwerk dat “Constellation: Bliss” heet. Normaal gesproken laat ik het aan mijn photo art over om tot je verbeelding te spreken. Maar vandaag neem ik de tijd om, bij uitzondering, in detail uit…

    Inspiration and self-acceptance. What do these 2 have in common?

    Do you ever look at the achievements of others, asking where they get their inspiration from? No? Well, I do. In the past, even before I became a professional photo artist, I sometimes looked at the artworks of other artists with astonishment. I still do, actually. And one of the questions that...

    The flow of creative energy. What is it? And how do you use it?

    Do you know that feeling when everything you do seems to work? And you hardly have to make any effort to achieve the desired result? Or maybe the opposite, when everything just fails? And you're unable to get into 'the flow' that makes everything possible? Yes, "that flow" that makes everything...
  • Malungos capoeira meeting Amsterdam 2019

    The past week I've experienced quite a few beautiful things, about which I'd like to tell you more. But I'll save that for next week. For now I'll keep it short. For me this week is all about capoeira. Since we are celebrating our 10th anni...

    The power of visualisation

    The power of visualization is real. It's a free tool that is accessible to everyone. There is nothing spooky about it. And it's quite practical. Provided you know how to use it. Unconsciously I used it years ago. It ensured that I could find my passion in creating my artworks...
  • She is a real Surinamese flower

    I often use flowers in my photo art. I never really thought about why I do that. Until I recently looked at all my works and saw an enormous amount of flowers. That is why I now take the time to do little investigation. I'm quite curious I must say. Symbolism It is well...
  • I am going on vacation to Suriname and I am bringing ...

    A few more weeks to go before I return to Suriname, my home country. To visit my family. And to recover from all the craziness I had to deal with in recent months. I'm looking forward to taking those long walks. And family who comes to visit. With all the nice chatter included. While eating and drinking on the veranda...

    Visualizing an invisible enemy with photo art

    Gravity is working against me. The first words of a John Mayer song. It was partly the inspiration for this artwork, which is also called Gravity, that I made in 2017. Certainly 1 of my favorites. It's because of this artwork I learned about some destructive thoughts I didn't know I had. For...
