I finished my study Fine Arts at the ArtEZ Art Academy in Arnhem in 2011. I not only practice painting and drawing but also photography, film making, printing techniques and sculptural works, working with bronze and cast aluminum. In addition I learned some glass blowing techniques and working with ceramics. A wide range of techniques and I found merit in them all.

During that time my paintings/works became more wild, organic and expressive, often consisting of different materials, introducing rhythm and structures. Using splashings, drippings and introducing different kinds of sand in my work.

I move on the border between chaos and order, darkness and light, Yin and Yang - the forces that hold the universe in motion.

Black and white, these "non-colours" symbolize the universal forces for me, that's why they are so important in my work.

Sand, which I like to use, is of great significance: due to its low fertility, it stands for drought, dryness and its countless grains seem perhaps worthless. But because of its countless numbers it also stands for abundance, as well as eternity.

Not only beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but also the idea of good & evil is a matter of perspective. I love playing with perspectives and creating illusions. Strength lies in movement and movement is life. This is visible in my dynamic drawings: The lines dance on the surface and give shape to the figures.

I use several layers of translucent white to paint over the drawings, thereby adding layer by layer, with splashing and drippings to make them less perfect and diffuse. Like memories getting diffused by time.

In addition to my black & white art, I create sculptures which represent balance and unity with all its movement-rich detail. This work reflects the early influence of H.R. Giger and expresses my love for biology and living things. Organic forms with many joints symbolize the continuous movement, entities that are symmetrical in itself
