Inspiration is all around us. In the beauty of nature, a flower, scuba diving, architecture, the little things of every day life and human interactions.
I combine these observations with the memories of my dreams into artworks defined by a balance between light and dark filled with detailed graphic patterns .
I also believe true art and creativity can not be restrained by one technique, so by not only creating a world on wood, I draw murals, windows and paper but also design & sew the clothes I wear and work as a photographer.
With focus, discipline, patience and a vision I believe you can achieve anything you want.
Slowly the boundaries in expressing my creativity in one specific discipline seem to fade. Because I strive to always keep an open vision, regarding style, technique or discipline.
Inspired by life, the duality in people’s characters, both sides to every story.
The longing, doubt, challenge, to overcome, and strive to do better. Creating a mixture of female intrigue, darkness and wonder, always evolving.
