I am 55 years old and live near Antwerp, Belgium with my wife Gilberte and our three cats. In the picture I am the one with the beard, the other is Louis, my grandson.

I am a mechanical engineer and have always had an interest in mathematics. I am always on the look-out for mathematical theories that can produce images that no one has ever seen before. Translating these into Ultra Fractal or Povray code is my main hobby. As an amateur in mathematics, I usually need help, and I enjoy working with professional mathematicians to visualize their work. A good example is the graphics that I produced together with Etienne Ghys, of the Ecole Normale Supérieure at Lyon, for his plenary lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians (Madrid, August 2006).

We are currently producing two hours of Povray animation for a DVD on the subject of "Dimensions".

Below are 4 examples of my work, but there are hundreds more on my website, such as Kleinian groups, Escher tilings, Droste effect images, circle packings, fractals and more.
