Hi! Happy that you are interested in my world of mystic shades, funky colors, and crazy lines. I am a Dutch painter and upcycler. Since 1990 I work with charcoal, graphite and oil paint. Around the year 2000, I started also working on a computer with a pen tablet. Since 2010, I extended my work field with textiles and applied art. The characteristics of my work are artisanal, small scale and neo-romantic.

The name Pixelpolly was invented in a spontaneous mood while working on the computer with timelines, filters, and effects. (Pixel Polly is a scattering, exploding effect in Adobe After Effects). Work has been shown at the linen museum Bussemakerhuis in Borne, the National Theater Hall in Utrecht (paintings & video walls), the Museum of resistance in Amsterdam (installation), at the Dutch sustainable Fashion Week & during the annual Museum Night of Rotterdam.
