For my English friends, the ENGLISH version below:
I was born in Hilversum, the Netherlands in 1962. Past in a nutshell: Veterinary-assistent; production of Radio-programs; Prof. bassplayer for ten years; study for social worker; Jungian-(psycho)therapist; born with spiritual abilities; I wrote two books and nowadays I´m working as a spiritual coach/counselor and I do a lot of spirit-art painting and drawing.

Art is a higher definition of love. Love for nature, for beauty, for the unseen world… the spiritual world. Plato said: At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet. And to stay in the philosophy for a while, Aristoteles said: ´Art completes what nature cannot bring to finish. The artist gives us knowledge of nature´s unrealized ends.´ And this is how it feels to me, even though if I don´t know who the spirit-artists are that may come trough…..
