The VONC Gallery is open by appointment.

Let me introduce myself

For 25 years I was an entrepreneur working in the manufacturing industry. Managing your own company is in fact a top-class sport, and as an entrepreneur I have known not only great successes and major challenges but also the occasional setbacks. During all those years, I have remained active in the field of art and creativity and learned to value the positive effect of creativity in my work.


Creativity is my biggest passion. It has helped me to discover and develop my own potential, to be open to things, to break fresh ground and venture into the unknown. As it encourages experimentation and investigation, the creative process – of any kind whatever – has helped to build my confidence. It has also helped me to relax, which makes it easier to solve problems. It is a source I have learned to tap irrespective of what is going on in the outside world.
By way of the painting and sculpture workshops, courses and masterclasses on offer at the VONC studio, I would like to help you connect or reconnect with the sources of your own inspiration and creativity. To do so I can provide you with a range of painting or sculpting possibilities. The VONC gallery means to be a platform for artists to showcase their work to a wider audience.


I have over 30 years' experience with drawing and painting and a 20-year acquaintance with sculpture. Throughout all those years I have taken classes from a variety of artists. My creative scope was expanded at the Art Academy in Maasmechelen (Belgium), the visual arts programme at Arte in Nijmegen and the Miss Marble sculpture studio in Lent. You are most welcome to drop by and take a look at examples of my work. For a full overview, you can also download the painting portfolio and the sculpture portfolio.
