short bio & artist statement
Welcome to my website. I am a Dutch visual artist and I live and work in Amsterdam.
I studied Drawing and Art History at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and Monumental Arts at the Academy of Arts Gerrit Rietveld in Amsterdam.
Since my studies I expose my works on a regular basis in The Netherlands as well as abroad.
As initiator and curator I make exhibitions of visual art in The Netherlands and abroad.
I make drawings, paintings, three-dimensional works, art installations and works commissioned.
viewing experiences, from the wonderment about an observation
My works are an attempt to create a ‘non-hierarchical’ space through an identical grid or are variations on a type, reduced to the essence.
Eventually, the artworks do not refer to anything other than itself.
My fascination is the countless lines that make unspoken and unseen connections in the spatial whole.
“In response to the created world around me, I determine my place again and again in my works,
so I exist!”
