I was born on the 3rd of March 1990 in Breda, The Netherlands. As far back as I can remember, I've been drawing. This came with a fascination for nature, fantasy and history. As well as a sense that there was something else, something Other, more mysterious about the world than the surface qualities let on. I spent a large part of my childhood being outside. The experiences I had then have shaped in a major way the direction I've taken with my work.
Art is my way of exploring humanity’s story through mythology, of expressing the sense of mystery and wonder that I feel, of showing my reverence for nature. A recurring theme in my work is order versus chaos, the known versus the unknown, self versus the other. The coming into contact of these forces fascinates me.
I see my artworks as portals through which the viewer is able to step out of their ordinary experience.
