Roy Kerckhoffs , born in Geleen, Netherlands, in 1973, is a self-taught photographer.
“My father taught me to draw when I was 3-4 years old. I became fascinated by the paintings of the Dutch Masters and later I became interested in photography when my parents bought a small camera for me when I was about 10. I moved to San Diego, CA in 2003 to become a scientist at the University of California San Diego (I have a PhD in bioengineering). I founded Eyeball Photography with my wife Marie in 2008, which became Roy Kerckhoffs Art in 2014. Also early in that year I gave up my job and career as a scientist to pursue a full time career as an artist.”
