As a child, I had my first creative experience with a pencil and paper. It turned out to be a good way to express myself. Later, I studied Graphic Design and Multimedia Design courses at the Graphic Lyceum
in Rotterdam. Here I transformed my creative skills into a professional way. This resulted in working in the graphic industry for 15 years now.
10 years ago, I was asked to facilitate a drawing workshop at a primary school, for kids at the age of
5-12 years old. This was a very inspirational and joyfull experience and I decided to expand this in doing more social work as a volunteer, especially with children. The last 9 years I have developed and facilitated creative projects for children, to help express themselves in this creative way.
Lately I have focussed more on social and mental health projects, like The Confidence Journal, Speak Up Collective and Saging Grace. I made some personal brand identities together with creative designs. Very inspiring projects.
I use photography for my work, but also as an interesting hobby as well. A few years ago I walked with my camera through a park and discovered a beautiful swan’s nest. With my pictures I want to inspire people to notice the ‘real life’. There is more to discover and learn from nature than you actually think.
The website shows a selection of graphic work, pictures and social (children’s) work experiences. It also contains a collection of portrait drawings I made in the last 20 years, from artists like Alicia Keys, P!nk, Julia Roberts and many more.
Let’s inspire each other and create new things!
