My work is about trying to understand us as human beings.
Our sensitivity, intimicy, emotions, behaviour, struggles,
desires, and last but not least: our universal need for love.
But also trying to understand who we are beyond our human form.
For that I’m constantly shifting between different layers of consciousness.
Painting helps me – most of the time intuitive - to understand what is
happening inside us, individual and collective, and with that I'm also
trying to connect with others.
I'm always searching for essence and I think we do all seek for
this in our own unique way.
This way of discovering my own essence started at the end of 2019,
when I started to draw.
I was not happy in life and wanted to feel the comfort of drawing
from when I was a child again.
I did not have a plan. I just bought some pencils and sketch paper.
I remembered that feeling of creating from when I was young again.
It felt like coming home.
From that point creating became a way to heal, reconnect and transform.
Not long after I started creating I got asked to show my work
at an exhibition in Amsterdam. It was a beautiful experience
to show my work and connect with the visitors.
This opportunity gave me the confidence
to follow my creating urge and trusting my intuition.
We live in a loud and fast world. We can use some more slowing down,
real connection and understanding for each other. So with my paintings
I'm also trying to create a sense of inner peace and calmness by it's viewer.
Slow down. Look around. Wonder. Enjoy.
