Currently exhibiting at ZIMIHC Theater Zuilen with Mariëtte van Waard!

It can be viewed during office hours or during concerts!


My name is Sylé. I’m an artist and an illustrator.

My work is about an inner search that can be both personal and universal. It concerns heartache, hurt, isolation and longing, but ultimately it is about connection and ultimately, it is about true love and devotion.
I am inspired and driven by the beauty of creation, human relationships and the incredibly awe inspiring mystery of the One.

This website contains an online portfolio and news about projects I am working on.
