Spirit in Colour

Welcome to Spirit in Colour

The paintings have found their way into private collections in the Netherlands, England, Switzerland and Canada. There have been solo exhibitions in England (Steiner House, London), and in the Netherlands (Zeist Castle), as well as group exhibitions in Switzerland (Goetheanum, Dornach). Sizes vary from post-card to 12 m2.


Because of their spiritual character, the art you see here works particularly well in a space in which a contemplative, peaceful atmosphere is envisaged; for example a medical practice, a meditation room, a religious space or similar.


Spirit is real in art, and in the works shown here it has a strong connection to the object. This is established through the special way of working which has been developed.


All about this way of working, including the book you can order, is described here.


More biographical details can be found here.
