About my work
By drawing, I try to find ground in the ambiguous reality that surrounds me. I image the complexness of impressions that are close to me, with drawings, mono prints and photos.
In drawing, a connection is made between images and emotions. In that process I explore a wider area, giving space to opposing forces that may coexist together: holding vs. releasing, beauty vs. horror, dream vs. reality. With my work I try to do justice to that complexity of life.
With a background in Communications & Design (graduated from the Inholland University of Applied Sciences in 1998) and working in the arts and cultural sector since, I have developed my interests and work towards Fine Arts, specializing in graphics and drawing. In 2012, I graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, Bachelor Fine Arts
