Eppe de Haan:
Eppe de Haan was born in Arnhem, Holland and studied art at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague. Originally a painter, he came to Pietrasanta to try his hand at marble carving in 1995. He started carving in a studio in Querceta before joining Studio Sem where the artisans there shared their skills and experiences with him.

In his paintings or sculptures, Eppe’s preoccupations are the same: figurative work with an emphasis on nudes and face fragments. As well as carving in marble, Eppe also uses bronze and glass.
