I like to listen to music, and I especially enjoy Jazz and Blues. I also love the paintings of Piet Mondrian as well as the colors of Delft Blue earthenware, which I incorporate into my Jazz and Blues designs together with elements of Mondrian’s style. This results in an exciting type of artwork in which I am searching for a new direction that embodies my own culture, my musical tastes, and my art.


I work with acrylic paint as well as inks and watercolors. As backgrounds, I enjoy using old newspapers as well as pages from antique dictionaries. Sometimes I work on pieces of cardboard. I like to make mixed-media collages using recyclable materials, items that people throw away. I also make prints, usually of my music-related art, which in turn is largely improvised.


As a child growing up in New York City, I was always fascinated watching people who were different looking. I began to draw people while I was in primary school, and I have not stopped. I have been creating art for over 50 years, and am inspired by music, Jazz in particular. I have exhibited throughout the USA and in the Netherlands since 2004. In addition, I have enjoyed considerable success over the past 17 years painting live at the North Sea Jazz Festival, creating artworks that – just like the music – are improvised. I also love the history of art in the Netherlands, and I like to use one of my favorite artists, Mondrian, as an inspiration to develop new styles of art. I am always creating, and it gives me great pleasure to share my artworks with the public.

I am inspired by the theatre, Streetart, fairytales, animated movies, the colorful island of Bonaire, and by people and animals.

Each time you visit Kunstsuper Delft you will see something new. Although the work of newcomers is often on display, the regular artists also routinely feature new work and make sure it is presented differently. So it is always worth coming along and having a look inside the gallery.
