The material that I love to create my artworks on the most is wood
The natural feeling, the care and patience it needs whilst drawing
on wood are a perfect match for me using millimetre thin ink pens.
My drawings and paintings are personal stories illustrated by filling
every corner or shape with graphic patterns.
These are all details of structures I see around me in my every day life.
By doing so I calm and clear my mind as if there is no more space left for thought.
My background in photography and graphic design I use to transform the inspiration I find
in nature, architecture, human interaction, shaping this into the graphic patterns
that define my artworks.
I believe true art and creativity can not be restrained by technique, so by not only
creating a world on wood, I draw on murals, windows and paper but also design &
sew my own clothing and am now planning to take a course in screen printing
and plan to design my own clothing line in the future.
As I grow older, I grow as a creative... as an individual being.
And with age the boundaries in expressing my creativity in one specific discipline seem to fade.
I aim to always keep an open vision, regarding style, technique and discipline,
the future is a journey.
When it comes to inspiration and influences, I am inspired by life, the duality in people’s characters,
the struggle, the joy, doubt, challenge, disappointment, to overcome, to challenge oneself.
From all this I try to create a mixture of female intrigue, darkness and wonder.
This leads me to create a whimsical yet clear representation of my elusive world.
