For me painting is a way to connect. With the inner self and with others.

My work is about connection, love and vulnerability.

I'm trying to find essence and I think we do all seek for this in our own unique way.


This way of trying to find my own essence started at the end of 2019, when I started to draw.
Two years before that I got burned out. It was a long journey of finding my true self and

creating became a way to heal and connect.

Not long after I started creating and showing my work I got asked to show my work

at an exhibition in our capital city Amsterdam. It was a beautiful experience to show

myself and my work and connect with the visitors. This opportunity gave me the

confidence to follow my creating urge and trusting on my intuition.

I'm getting inspired by organic shapes, relationships, nature, light and feelings.

I love to use soft and calming colors and tones. 

We live in a loud world where there is a lot of rush. With my work I'm trying to

create a sense of inner peace and calmness by it's viewer.
