Hello, and welcome to my site.
My name is Jeroen Carelse. On this site I show some of my paintings, photographs, illustrations and one day, my sculptures. I also participate in some projects, among which is an art collective called “End of Darkness“.

In parallel to the above, I study the relationships between Creativity and Consciousness and Authenticity. In my previous life as a design consultant, I earned a patent on diffractive optics hence I presume to know something about light, colours and materials. And I have done loads of teaching.

I live and work in Finland where the summers are short and hot, and the winters long and cold. Note: my pre-2020 site is archived and is full of texts about creativity, art, teaching those things and all sorts of related matters. Now I do not want to write so much any more, hence this new site.
