Starting March 2018 I am one of the four permanent artists and owners of the contemporary art gallery Salon West in Amsterdam-West. In this wonderful space I will show and sell my artworks. Summer 2018 I will also organise and give workshops drawing / painting & portrait. Dates will follow soon.
About Salon West: You will find a wide variety of artworks such as paintings, linocuts, etchings and 3D works. The artists represented by Art Gallery Salon West are well established. The artworks represent a mix of styles to ensure that everyone will find something to their liking. You will find etchings, lithographs, abstract and figurative paintings, photographic works, and art books. The art collection changes regularly by displaying new artworks, guest-artists and juried group exhibitions.
The name gallery Salon West refers to the 17th and 18th century where French artistic academies organised official art exhibitions called salons. In those days paintings were often hung up to the ceilings in a Salon-style, following the example of the exhibitions held by the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

The Dutch Portrait Awards
This portraitpainting of my dad was shortlisted for the Dutch Portrait Awards. It was chosen from 800 artworks. All 50 selected portraits are on display at the portraitgallery of Soestdijk Palace from april 21st till september 3rd 2017
Laurine: Linda heeft in het portret van mijn oma haar gelijkenis supergoed getroffen. Maar meer nog, ze heeft haar persoonlijkheid weten te vatten. En dat op basis van een foto! Het was ook een hele makkelijke en fijne samenwerking, met tussentijds overleg en duidelijke afspraken.
Fay Smith – The Wolfhound Irish Bar & Kitchen: Fast, professional and very pleasant to deal with. A short explanation and a couple of photos to illustrate the idea were enough for her to translate it into exactly what we had in mind. The painting is now a favourite among staff and customers in our establishment. Highly recommended.
