Hello and welcome! My name is Christiaan. I am a painter from the Netherlands. I like to paint landscapes, still lives and symbolic paintings.
Besides painting I also teach children the Dutch language and give piano lessons. For elderly people I host a painting club every Thursday in Heemstede (NL).
In my country I followed a classical art school. They taught me many different techniques and ways to make, and interpret art. Most of the artists I adore are from the nineteenth century.
With my art I try to make a thing out of the ordinary for people. Something you would normally have to go to a museum for.
I use high quality materials and always correctly prepare and ground the painting surface. Most paintings of mine are done with oil paints, and some with acrylics.
If a painting is kept in good conditions, it can last longer than a human lifespan.
With Best Regards,
