I’m an artist operating at the intersection of graphic design, photography and art. I graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in 2003. During the years I collaborated with a lot of artists, graphic designers and architects. I work on self initiated projects as well for clients. In my practice and everyday life, I’m fascinated by local stories, the customs and unwritten rules of culture, myths, social fiction and blind spots. I live and work in Dordrecht, NL. Thank you for your interest in my work.

In my personal mission to make contemporary art more visible and accepted in society, I regularly organise events and artist talks. In July 2019 I founded DOLLY — a platform for contemporary art, that translates current social themes into projects, exhibitions and events.
