I was born in Rhoon, The Netherlands in 1963. At the age of 11 I started to learn the violin with Martin Sonneveld. Already during my study of the modern violin at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, I specialized in playing the baroque and classical violin. After my studies I worked for more than 10 years in most of the leading European baroque orchestra’s.
In 1997 I decided to combine my musicianship with my interest and knowledge of bows, my passion for wood working and my hobby of furniture making. I had the luck of finding a fantastic teacher, my good friend and wonderful bowmaker Basil de Visser from Amsterdam, whom I owe a lot.
Nowadays I am a bow maker and musician, which means that I can test my bows on stage and that I have many opportunities for exchanging thoughts about bows with my collegue musicians, who even often lead me to traces of fine old bows.
