"We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing"

 

 

Hi there! Thanks for being interested in me and my work. I am an Amsterdam-based creative crafter. I started painting on textiles and canvas in 1990. In 1991 I followed a masterclass by the American photorealist Ted S. Jacobs. Around the year 2000, I started also working on a computer with a pen tablet. Since 2010, I extended my work field to textiles and applied art. 

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.
