I was an artist in residence, and workes as a teacher at the Nola Hatterman Institute in Paramaribo, Surinam.
As many other years, I fled the Dutch winters in 2007. I went to Paramaribo for two months, to work for myself and teach to provide for my stay.
I shared a giant studio with hundreds of church benches and other furniture that came from the oldest wooden church in south America. I had an altar as my easel and created new species on the sheet music that was lying around.
At the Nola Hatterman institute I worked as an art teacher, drawing and painting lessons; to model, landscape and concept. Also art history and style- and concept formation.
