In 1998 I was recognized as a visual artist by Stroom: Stroom is the Hague Center for visual art.
Later I joined the Voorschotense Kunstkring and the Kunstgroep Wassenaar. From 2017 I am a member artist of Pulchri the Hague.
We regularly work in the studio of Trix Zwartjes in The Hague. In addition, I participate in Studio 37PK in Haarlem. A research group for artists led by Pietsjanke Fokkema.
