About me I have been working as an independent visual artist since 1994 I am an autonomic artist with a background in graphic design. Over time I developed into a multi-disciplinary artist. A distinctive feature in my work as an artist is the human body in al its shapes , forms and behavioural aspects. My art is often a personal reflection of social issues and current affairs but I’m also inspired by daily scenes, platitudes and the absurdities of human behaviour. Although my art is highly aestetical; it also contains distressing elements that evoke a feeling of uneasiness. This contradiction is a recurring theme in my art works Do you really see what is shown? I am not an innovator in the broadest sense of the word, but the process of developing and reinventing is reflected in my work. Next to my work as an independent artist, I create and participate in community art projects and educational art projects. I also design for non-profit organisations, private clients and commercial companies. Be sides I’m also an art coach and a participating member of the visual arts committee in Zwolle However there’s a clear line between autonomous (no consessions) and working in assignment (what’s the demand), I like to play with the limited framework aswell as working with no boundries
