I live in Blankenberge on the Belgian Coast, about 15km from Bruges. After being trained as an art teacher in the 60ties, I started teaching for a few years. Then I had my carreer in a school administration. After retirement, I started drawing and painting again. I bought a lot of English books and DVD's by British artists and subscribed to The Artist and Leasure Painter Magazines. This improved my English and I learned to paint with watercolour. My favourite technique is (as you can see in my gallery) pen and wash. I entered a few group exhibitions and had solo's almost every year. After a few health problems I try to start drawing and painting again.
