Commisioned Portrait

I have made portraits in bronze on people's orders. These may be:

  • important people within companies (founders);
  • private persons, a relative who is dear to you;
  • children.

These portraits are found in various buildings, offices or companies.

If you are interested in a personal portrait in bronze or a portrait of someone who is very important in your life, feel free to get into contact with me without any obligations. I will then discuss with you how this works.

Member of the Limburg Art Circle. This has been an artists' collective since 1910. The members' artworks are characterised by creating contemporary art with a personal character. Contrary to the past the present members generally tend to rendering reality in a more abstract way.
