My name is Peet van de Sandt. I was born in 1955, and grew up in and around the city of Venlo, the Netherlands. Before I started painting, I was a tax lawyer. During the final seven years of my career, I was chairman of Koenen en Co, a regional accounting firm. I am very happily married and have two lovely daughters. 

I started painting in the summer of 2014. Although my work is based on my belief in the intrinsic value of art (i.e. l’art pour l’art), it also contains a certain amount of cultural criticism, and expresses the artist’s view on the world. It fulfills the interest of others, but does not devolve into fanaticism.
