I grew up in Zundert, the birthplace of Vincent van Gogh, which lies to the south of Breda. The house where I lived as a child was just 3 km from the house of the Van Gogh family on the same road from Breda to Antwerp.

However, even 100 years later, a Protestant child such as Vincent was still an exception in an overwhelmingly Catholic village consisting mostly of farming and middle class families. I grew up as a Catholic child in just such a family.For the “novelty transport” on location, such as a “dafje” (vintage Dutch car), tuk-tuks and mopeds I work together with Berelactive events in Eindhoven and Breda.

Salesclip: Here you can get some more information about me !

The life of the painter Vincent van Gogh has been a common thread in my life. For years there has been an exchange between the municipality of Zundert and Auvers-sur-Oise and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the places in France where Vincent produced so many beautiful paintings. Since the age of 18 I have lived in the Randstad (the urban centre of the Netherlands), and most recently in the vicinity of Amsterdam. As regards work, I have mostly worked in a variety of positions in the financial sector. However my passion for art, and painting in particular, means that I have always wanted to help those with an interest in Vincent to get to know the places in Brabant with a connection to his life. I have also worked as a travel guide in Asia; the first steps towards Van Gogh business excursions were thus made.

If your wishes differ from the proposed programme for Van Gogh business excursions and business events, please don’t hesitate to contact us via the contact form.
