Why should you take painting lessons with me? Others are better off telling this as you can read in the accompanying article by Monique Jose Timmermans that appeared in De Doornse Kaap in November 2021. I have been an enthusiastic draftsman and painter from an early age, have a lot of experience in training and teaching – in English and Dutch – and have been commercially active in the training world for the last 30 years, as a coach, trainer and independent entrepreneur. Everything came together in 2021 when I ‘coincidentally’ gave a painting workshop for a group. A great discovery that this gave both the students and myself a lot of new insights, fun and energy!
