Period 1: 2002 - 2007 realistic oil paintings

January 2002, we had just moved into an other house and after the birth of our second child I was not feeling so well. I yearned to listen to my heart and so I decided to quit my regular job and follow my feelings... One of the first nights, just after I quit, I had a lucid dream. I dreamed that I was painting and in the dream I was born again. I woke up and thought: painting!

Painting was the spatial step I took to reshape my life and it changed my life. A new door opened up.

In our living room, among the children playing, I began to paint with oil paint on canvas as a self-taught artist. Often I went into nature, together with the children, or alone. In nature I found peace, quiet and inspiration. A few months later Niels made a small studio for me in our shed, there I could work in peace. In this studio and outside in nature, I made most of my oil paintings.
