Kees lives on the edge of the Lantzville Foothills on Vancouver Island, overlooking Georgia Strait.
In his cedar sheltered workshop, he pursues his passion of making beautiful functional items from local and non-endangered exotic hardwoods.Each piece of hardwood is carefully selected for grain and colour configuration, so that no two items are ever the same. A European background and love for elegant simplicity is evident in the clean flowing, organic lines of his pieces.
His work has been sold in juried shows and galleries, finding homes on every continent but Antarctica.
