I am a visual artist based in Amsterdam. One of my main practices is silk-screen printing. I use this technique in a rather free way, printing by hand, sometimes in combination with drawing and painting. My work consists of 2 dimensional work on paper and canvas as well as wearable objects (body based art).

In recent years the main focus of my work is in depicting everyday life objects in relation to time and place, memory and present. These graphic objects are printed as singular images or in repetitive patterns, inspired by principles of Pop-Art.

For example, a series of vintage t.v. screens featuring abstract compositions of colors. Another example is a series of smartphone screens featuring images from historic and prehistoric origins (Egyptian coffin portrait of Fayum, dinosaurs etc.).
The main interest here is the contrast between digital and analogue, current and eternal.

In early years I have been studying art history and was granted a scholarship in poetry writing. I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld art academy Amsterdam in 2005. During this time I also spent 2 semesters at the Vienna university of applied arts, specializing in the silk-screen technique at the university's textile workshop.

Recently I have spent a residency period in Berlin, working at the silk-screen workshop of the BBK artist association.

My work was presented in different publications, exhibitions and art projects in the Netherlands and abroad, including Kunstmuseum The Hague, Vorarlberg museum, Austria and more.

My work is mainly printed at my studio in Amsterdam, where I have constructed a silk-screen printing table and facilities.

In the future I plan to continue working with printing and other hand-crafted techniques. I plan to further research and develop my artistic practices.
