Nice to meet you! I'm Maud, charcoal and graphite artist and passionate about drawing people. My drawings often zoom in on young adults and their relationship to the rapidly changing outside world.

After a busy 2023, I spend the first months of 2024 working on new ideas and starting some cool new projects. 

Feel free tot contact me for inquiries about my work or for a studio visit. The easiest way to stay informed is through my instagram account.

Below are some of my larger, recent drawings. For more details, processhots and framed works, as well as other drawings; please check out the drawings page. 



Van 2 t/m 9 juni ben ik in Griekenland om een workshopweek portrettekenen te geven voor Miniati Reizen aan de prachtige Griekse kust. Dit is de directe link naar de portrettekenpagina van Miniati Reizen 




Transformer, charcoal portrait


Transformer (burnished charcoal, private collection)

Transformer; No longer a child, not yet an adult. Geared up and ready to deal with the challenges of the outside world.

I'm very honoured that his drawing was nominated for De Nederlandse Portretprijs 2023 and was exhibited in Slot Zeist during the summer of 2023.

For Transformer and Charcoal Angels below I used a sanding technique to burnish the charcoal in heavy paper instead of just drawing on the surface. The process is time consuming and labor intensive but it opens new possibilities for detailing and makes the drawing more intense and durable.



Charcoal drawing Charcoal angels


Charcoal angels (burnished charcoal, 2022, available)

Dimensions: 87x70 cm framed (wooden frame with museum glass)

Children absorbed in carefree play together, resulting in something amazing. 

This large charcoal drawing is based on a children’s art project in which art was combined with music. Movements that started of hesitant, eventually synchronized and melted together in amazing drawings. 




Pressure (2022, available)

Dimensions: 109x86 cm framed (wooden frame with museum glass)


Large charcoal drawing that I created using charcoalpencil on heavyweight paper.

I'm proud that "Pressure" was selected for the 2023 London Art Biennale in Chelsea in the beautiful venue of Chelsea Old Town Hall.
