I like to think about my illustrations as if they are snapshots from a story. My aim is to start a dialogue with the theme I’m illustrating. The result is an image that is asking an active participation of the reader.
My go-to medium is acrylics together with graphite and charcoal. I found out that with these media I can achieve best the mood I’m looking for in my work.
I prefer to work with more complex and abstract subject matter, not explaining a problem, but rendering it in another context.
I work and live in Haarlem in the north-west of the Netherlands and studied at the Maastricht Academy of Art.
