I am a multidisciplinary artist-designer with a background in fashion design and research. I studied International Relations and Psychology at the Amsterdam University College, Amsterdam, before going to ArtEZ Academy of the Arts, Arnhem. My never-ending curiosity, research-based working method and ability to transform the world around me into the visual and verbal, enables me to delve deeply into a wide variety of subjects and create multi-layered work. I work both individually as well as collaboratively.
