Dutch arts & crafts


Recently I’m into an old Dutch craft: Staphorst dotting. With special stamps, made of all kinds of nails, I make patterns wich I use in my paintings.
One of the paintings is “Biblebelt”, named after a geographic belt in The Netherlands with the most conservative religious habitants.
Staphorst dotting is one of the most original Dutch craft and its adopted by the Unesco World Heritage list.

‘Biblebelt’, Lignite, ink, acrylic, silver-leaf and pigments on with sand prepared paper
