My studio is based in Amsterdam. It is also where I live so the city of Amsterdam is the scene for my every day life. I live in the North part and my studio is situated at the authentic and rough old NDSM wharf. Sea going ships where built there and launched off the ramps into 'het IJ'. Amsterdam scenery and people also influence my work. If you're a quick draughtsman like me, with a pretty exact image memory, Amsterdam and its inhabitants keep providing visual stimuli.
