In my artistic practice I work with diverse disciplines like illustration, painting, photography, sculpture, often coming together in installations. In my work I try to research the connections of human beings to their environment and the feelings and conflicts that come inbetween. I’d like to translate my experiences such as questions, confusion, ideas and wondering into work that create new narratives with ambiguity and poetry. My illustrations are most likely depicting parts of nature, sometimes connected to emotions and feelings. Opposed to other work, I like to make use of bright warm colours in my illustrations while making use of material that can look more sketchy, like pencil, charcoal and collage. My working process often also starts with drawing or sketching ideas. This is fundamental for the whole of my artistic practice. In my more sculptural work I like to work with rough materials from the environment, such as plain wood, concrete, grass, branches or also found materials like cardboard or pallets.
