My work as an Art Consultant and Curator is based on a passion for art and a great admiration for what artists create. I want to help them show their work, promote and give it a place.

By having been a gallery owner, organizer, curator and Art Fair owner in recent years. I have created large network of artists / gallery owners / collectors and other art professionals such as: curators, museum directors, policy makers and art critics.

As initiator / organizer / owner of the Art Fairs RAW Art Fair / RC Art Fair / RAW Expo / NO WALLS expo the past years and as curator of the contemporary art at North Sea Jazz festival since 2013 I know very well how to set up larger projects and manage them.

As an Art consultant and curator I no longer need a permanent exhibition space, as I had since 2010 until July 2018, when I had a Bob Smit gallery in Rotterdam.

In the coming years I will work from Kortgene (Zeeland) with a permanent group of freelancers.

I will help the artist directly from out their studios getting the works a right place, at private companies and institutions. I will show and present the artists at Dutch and International Art Fairs.
