I drew every day when I was a kid. As I grew older, I started to experiment more with the possibilities of art. I got a degree of being a teacher in Arts and Design at ArtEZ in Zwolle. After that, I started with the premaster ‘Creative Industries’ at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. I learned a lot in the meantime within my work field and find it important to keep learning. Art is in my opinion indeed a constant development. Therefore I will explain my own development and opinion on art. I make engaged work and try to develop a consciousness in the viewer about the daily influences. I plead by accessibility toward a work. My personal motto in making an art work is Plato’s quote “Denken is het spreken van de ziel met zichzelf”. I observe self-examination as vital in viewing a work and its’ underlying themes.
