Jos is a professional, award winning artist and has been painting and drawing from a very early age. Jos and his wife live and work in the Kirup hills in WA. Jos grew up in the Wollongong area and moved to the Netherlands when he was 17. Jos and his wife spent 26 years in New Zealand and after their 4 children moved to Perth they decided to follow to West Australia.
Since leaving art school in Holland Jos has been on a long journey of discovery as an artist. With several years of employment inbetween Jos has now been a fulltime artist for over 30 years. The turning point in his career was the discovery of Spontaneous Realism. Jos loves painting spontaneously to let the colours form the picture. Most of his works are in large format to allow him free movement and expression and he loves using colour!
