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

 

I started painting on textile and canvas in 1989. In 1991 I followed a masterclass by the American photorealist Ted S. Jacobs. The name Pixelpolly was invented in a spontaneous mood while working on the computer with time lines, filters and effects. (Pixel polly is a scattering, exploding effect). Work has been exhibited at the textile museum, the National Theater Hall Utrecht (paintings & video wall), the Museum of resistance Amsterdam (installation), at the Dutch sustainable Fashion Week & during the annual Museum Night of Rotterdam.
