Note; I am open to portrait painting commissions on canvas or wood.

The portrait

It has sparked my curiosity that the portrait is usually represented by the face, so every outsider can still recognize the person who is the subject of the image. In my way of portraiture, the people portrayed can only be recognized by themselves, their lovers and the creator. It is an intimate way of presenting a person, by using a part of the body as individual as the face. All shapes, sizes, textures and colors are individual.

    All nipple portraits are painted on     

  hand-shaped concave canvasses using oilpaint. On average the diameter of the works is 8 cm, but sizes slightly vary. The series was started during the year of 2017 and the collection is ongoing.

They are also created on commission.

The portrait was the centerpiece of a public installation in Deventer called the Soviet pavillion.

'Vinkje, Slavinkje' is the title of this small mixed media stillife. Embroidery and oil painting are brought together, depicting a bird and a meat-roll whose names are almost the same.

The canvas size is 20x20 cm and the work has been made in 2017.

A 'Sausage party' is defined as a gathering with men severely outnumbering  women.

In this painting I took the words literal and combined them into a stillife.
