Born in Amsterdam, Holland, my family emigrated to New York in the ’60s, eventually settling in Los Angeles. Art has occupied me from my earliest recollection. As a youngster, I would travel to the public library, return with 10 art books, devour them, then return for 10 more. Though I never had any formal training or, indeed, any sort of academic career, I educated myself through visits to museums and galleries, and, of course, by doing the work. Along with an intimacy with art, I have always considered it equally important and rewarding to maintain a bond with literature, music and the liberal arts. Every artist has to invent painting for themselves. I want to create compelling and original art, and have been fortunate to find outlets for my work along the way as well as support from some people who like what I do.
