Carl is a Dutch-born artist, who has been painting for over 20 years. During that time he has had many solo and joint exhibitions and his paintings are in collections all over the world.
His work is inspired by Impressionism and he is primarily interested in creating a representative image of his subjects. These range from landscapes, cityscapes and people. Carl paints mainly in watercolour but has adapted his techniques to suit his different subjects.
He has a quirky sense of humour, which comes across in his portrayal of people. He paints from his memories of the people he meets and sees in everyday life and they can range from the superb to the ridiculous, the quaint to the poignant. They are also notable for their European feel.
Although he has painted in watercolour for many years, he is now experimenting with oils and acrylics.
