As an admirer of shipping I specialized myself in drawing Dutch ships excisting from the decade of the Dutch V.O.C. up to ships even excisting at the present day. Doing so I try to create an idea of history of shipping development and it's diversity throughout the last ages. I have always admired the great works of the late 17th century artists, father and son van de Velde. In my drawings I try to achieve the same amount of detail they used to achieve in their works in order to create an authentic representation of the real ships. Since shipping-development is thriving i am drawing besides old ships, more recently build ships like containership, tugboats, coastal boats and for instance ferry's. In addition I also started drawing foreign shipping. Beside that I recently started drawing birds that chose the Netherlands as their habitat (see my portfolio)
Have a good time browsing my works. For ordering excisting drawings or drawings on request please contact me.
