my story

I am a contemporary artist with a passion for structure, nature and architecture. I have been passionate about this since I was a child. Always wanting to build and create. Besides being a contemporary artist, I am also a designer. I have followed several graphical studies and courses and for many years I have worked at design studios. But being a contemporary artist is my true passion. There is no better feeling than to work out an idea into an actually tangible work of art. The knowledge that my art inspires others and is being enjoyed by others fulfills me with pride.

about the art

In my artworks I am always looking for contrasts. Contrast in form, color, material or vision. I get my inspiration from nature. The structures that together form a whole can be found in abundance in nature. And it is precisely that variety that inspires me enormously. In the work ‘Into the woods’ and ‘Iris’ I have made a complex structure from elements with a simple form that together form a whole. My goal is to touch the observers and take them into the work through these contrasts and complexity of the piece.

customised artworks

If you are looking for an artistic statement in your home or a spectacular piece for an office or a public space, with a customised artwork it is possible to have a unique artwork made especially for you. Format, material and color is then entirely at your own choice and will therefore give the perfect end result.
