About

During my studies graphic design at the Art Academy in Utrecht I learned that I have to let my work come into existence by following my intuition. Afterwards I analyze my work, discard the things that aren’t relevant and treasure the gifts that my hands gave me. In a way my hands make the work for me and my head separates the wheat from the chaff.

I am inspired by nature and things that accidentally occur around me. I try to make my work aesthetically pleasing, while at the same time sending a subtle message to drive people to change or influence their behavior.

In my studio / atelier I like to work with ceramics to make useful products,
textiles to make clothing or bags, pen or watercolor paint to make illustrations
and my camera to make video’s.
