Biography

I was born in Tilburg, The Netherlands in 1942, and have been living and working in Scotland since 1984. After a life of designing and making scientific instruments, I have turned my many abilities to sculpture. My wall-hanging and free standing sculptures, mostly metal, usually include optical or electronic elements and are closer to abstract than figurative. I attempt to combine materials with different characteristics and surface structures into harmonic entities which please the eye. I draw inspiration for my work from the world around me, and may on occasion convey an opinion or critisism on societal issues in strong symbolism.
