I was born (1987) and raised in the Netherlands with a small 4-year time span living in Spain as a child.
Since I was old enough to splatter some paint on paper, I love to be creative both in and out of school. After high school, I studied Biology and Medical Laboratory Research. In my spare time, I continued my art pursuit following various courses and a lot of self-study.
Many years ago, I started to face struggles with my health that left me with chronic health issues. Faced with having limited energy, I realised my artistic pursuit is my most meaningful goal and decided to switch careers. The main element of my creative process is working from the subconscious. It usually starts with creating a dynamic background. The figures I see arising in the background are then further developed, often using acrylic markers. Besides the mentioned workflow, I love to experiment with different materials and techniques.
It always amazes me how you can start without any idea and during the process slowly but surely see a wonderful world appearing on the canvas. Moreover, I find it fascinating to see how my work stimulates the fantasy of the viewer and how every viewer sees their meaning in my work.
I would love to know what you see in my work. Let us connect on social media.
