After my bachelor in Drawing, Painting and Textile Design at the Teacher Education in Nijmegen I started working at a photographic lab in Weesp and Amsterdam. In my years as a digital photo retouch professional there I produced countless image retouch assignments, anything related to stills. In 1995 I turned in my notice and continued with my independent retouch agency, Draw & Digit. Later on my interest went direction the scientific world. I graduated the Master Scientific Illustration in Maastricht in 2012. Afterwards I took an education on 3D Producer for stills and animation at CMM in Amsterdam. Then working as a scientific (bio) medical illustrator and animator. At present I am a Master Scientific Illustrator and Visual Artist. Creating art work about natural science, medicine, nature, wild life and environment in versatile techniques.
