Portraits in charcoal, ink, pastel, watercolour, gouache or oil, on paper or canvas.

Made life in the studio, the sitter’s home or even in the museum, in online sessions and from photos.

‘Hans just seems to have a knack for capturing unique moments in people’s lives … whether that’s a look or a tilt of the head or however the specialness is expressed. When I did finally ask Hans to do a portrait of my grandson, I was delighted with how professional the process was for commissioning what eventually become a beautiful oil painting.  Now, every time I look at it (and the accompanying family portrait I couldn’t resist getting), I look at my little grandson’s face and smile.  He may be thousands of kilometres away, but looking at his photo reminds me of those special times when we’ve been able to visit together and for a moment he doesn’t seem so far away.If you like Hans’ style and you’re thinking of commissioning a portrait, I do highly recommend him.’

 ‘Hans was wonderful to work with! Even though we are in different countries, he made it so easy to work with him and the paintings turned out so well. Our son has medical issues and you can’t see a hint of it, he captured his happy curious nature perfectly. 100% will be working with him again when the family grows!’
