FAQ

How do you create your artwork?

Is it a drawing or a painting? Often people ask me how my artwork is created, because I often use glass paintings as a base and make a combination with (colored) pencil. The glass painting techniques I use give my work a unique character and I can create textures and effects that are only possible to create on glass surfaces. After painting on glass I make photographs and edit them digitally. But I’m not always painting every detail, I sometimes use a digital ‘canvas’ that I already painted and photographed.

Where did you learn the glass painting technique?

I studied ‘Restauration and conservation’ of painted glass and stained glass in Antwerp at ‘Hogeschool voor de kunsten.’ Before I attended this study I studied art school in ’s Hertogenbosch, but I decided I would do better in Antwerp. Why? According to one of my teachers I failed in drawing techniques because my drawings were too ‘anatomic correctly’ for the art school standards. I thought: well, that is just perfect for restauration of paintings, a dream I also had for years, next to becoming an artist. Instead I attended the glass painting study because I discovered there were also paintings on glass which needed to be restored or conserved, and from that moment whenever I visited a cathedral or church with painted stained glass windows I was amazed by the beauty of the glass painting techniques and the extra dimension the light gave to the (stained) glass paintings. So I learned the techniques, and later on I decided to use the techniques to create my own style in my artwork.
