Currently, I study fine art at Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, I just entered my third year. For this study I moved to Rotterdam, before this I lived in a small town near Breda.
I am a lover of sports. I enjoy running, spinning, and cycling a lot. This keeps my headspace clean so new ideas for art can float in. Usually these ideas express themselves in a work made of ceramics, fabric, paint or a drawing.
I’ve always loved to draw and paint, so art school wasn’t a strange choice for me. Around 2018 in high school made my first oil painting (lady with the ermine), which set off my love for art and painting. For practice, I recreated some ‘classics’ in the painting world such as La Primavera (Botticelli) and Girl with the pearl earring (Vermeer), but things started getting interesting when I made my first self-portrait. By making more self-portraits I taught myself how to paint and slowly also started painting people around me and in commission.
