Welcome to this blog,
I am born in the village Moergestel (’77) and now I am living in Tilburg, The Netherlands, where I’m working as an illustrator.
I attended art-school in Tilburg (1999-2004), Granada (Spain) (2001-2002), and Ghent (Belgium) (2005-2008).
In Tilburg and Granada I was primarily educated as a visual artist, working in an autonomous and multi-media way. While finishing art school in Tilburg I won the De Pont prize 2003 for my autonomous work and I was nominated for the Tilburg Stimulation Prize 2003.
After plunging into the process of creativity this way, I started being attracted to making illustrations. I moved to Ghent and started following illustration classes from Carll Cneut. He introduced me to publisher De Eenhoorn in Belgium. From that moment I could start to work professionally on drawing a picture book, which has been written by Inge Misschaert (Balthazar, de eenzaamste ezel ooit). This book appeared in februari 2009. In september 2011 the second picturebook appeared, with a text written by my father!
