Of my drawing as a toddler I have no recollection, but I did want to draw lines on roads. My drawing started with Willam of Orange at primary school and later with a passion for line and free drawing at secondary school. When I was still called 'Rudie'.

Love for the city Utrecht ('Domstad'), architecture, photography and computer technology blend together into my realistic work. Detailed drawings, in which buildings, discomposed of disruptive elements and enriched in several wats, so that after being long forgotten the may shine in the leading role.

So that we may finally remember what a beautiful city our beloved Utrecht is.


It was my dear wife Ella who motivatie me to pick up drawing again. After the discovery of Adobe Fresco on the iPad, I was hooked again. The passion of a young guy, found again in a modern age.

Passionately and driven I shed myself into the world of style and technique. It was my last practice drawing ‘Harlingen’, that brought artist-ship and ‘Domstad Gallery’ to life.


From William of Orange to the birth of Domstad Rudie. In sickness, health, happiness and sadness. Drawing was, and is, my tower of strength. A passion that I can always return to – a love that never fades.

I would like to pass on my love for drawing to you.
