Welcome to my Patreon page!

Through the years, I have made increasing sacrifices to be able to paint and draw more and more. Early on, I knew this was not a hobby, nor was it a choice. 
I don't paint to make a physical representation of the figure. Neither do I paint only to show a certain expression. My definition of a great artwork is a crossroad of refined technique, introspection and allowing chance to play a role under a well-trained eye.

Through painting and drawing I analyse the relation between life and death, interior and exterior, power and powerlessness, organic and abstract figures. Themes are frequently the existential loneliness of man, the finiteness of life and the inability of man to deal with these realities.

Making a living as an artist is clearly not easy, given that the costs for a studio, paint and canvases are high and the returns only possible when exhibiting and selling work. Which means you have to financially cover several months between the expositions. Paradoxically, you need freedom of mind and focus in order to progress.

If you like my work, if you see progress and you feel there is potential - please consider making a contribution. All donations will make my mind more free, help me grow as an artist and will never be forgotten.

Believer
$100 or more per month 0 patrons

Wow, you're still reading? That's amazing! When you become a Believer, we get in touch. I think that's the right thing to do when someone is willing to donate such an amount of hard-earned money so I can continue my creative journey. 


In return for your donation, you will receive an original A3 charcoal drawing and we will have a monhtly phone conversation in which I can explain how my process looks like, how I'm making progress and how your money was used. Depending on your own curiosity or interests, you can ask me any question and I hope we can build a solid contact over time which will be interesting and rewarding for both parties.


Also:

• Receive a personal, physical, hand-drawn or -painted postcard in your mailbox every month

• Receive a personal, physical, hand-written letter

• Feel my eternal gratitude hovering over your right shoulder

Saint
$250 or more per month 0 patrons

OMG. You want to know about becoming a Saint?  


First of all, we meet (if that's possible given our geographical locations). I think that's a given when someone is apparently so convinced that you're capable of greatness and chooses to actively support you on your journey.


If you choose to become a Saint, we can meet or talk on the phone whenever you want. You are free to come visit my studio, have drinks or a meal together and talk about art and life. Mail me anytime. I am convinced you are a true art lover and so this encounter is bound to grow over time, leading to a meaningful relationship for both parties. 


In return for your donation, you will also receive an original painting (I will give you 5 options to choose from by e-mail).


In addition to:

• Receive a personal, physical, hand-drawn or -painted postcard in your mailbox every month

• Receive a personal, physical, hand-written letter (or choose a different receiver)

• Feel my eternal gratitude warming you from the inside!
