In a time where taking pictures of each other and ourselves has become all too common, Niels thinks the painted portrait is even more valuable. A painted portrait has all the aspects that have been lost by the ever present photography. They are personal and unique and a way to truly eternalize a person.

Niels likes to look at people to find out who they are. One's appearance, facial expressions and the look in the eyes tells him more than having a conversation. This observation practice sometimes results in awkward situations for Niels, after eyeballing somebody for an awkward long time. He asks your forgiveness.

Niels is availlable for commissioned portraits of your family, lover, best friend, the King, your cat or just you.
