Currently working on a colorful serie
-Why the black/unrecognized made faces?
It doesn’t matter how you look it’s about the person behind it. Everyone knows how people look so there’s no secret there. I just want the viewer to go deeper into their feelings than just a surface. Maybe recognize some feelings similar due to the painting. Also everybody has some kind of mask on to protect themselves for being hurt or something, so I hope people can relate to that feeling. So again it’s about the person behind it.
Sometimes there is a book in the painting called ‘The book of life’ it refers to that people live by rules made up by some people. But there is no such thing as a book of life, you just live your life in the best way you can and learn about life as you go along.
I love it when people get a little bit thrown into the deep and experience different emotions and thoughts, and these thoughts are for them selves, I’m not in the position to judge about that.
Teute Seulement" 2020
My series “ teute seulement” situations where you just have to realize that your life has to change or is changing... and you’re only can rely on yourself. Portraits of emotion and makes you wonder what the situation is. Serenity and silence reflection that’s the goal.
"HUMAN" SERIES 2018
With this new series I'm searching for a way to connect old with new..Using different techniques and everything I have learned so far about human emotions and take it to a next emotional level. These paintings are based on clear human emotions versus non clear human emotions. And along the way I will dig deeper in human consciousness and human ability to observe (deeper) emotions.
"Sow, harvest" 2017-2018
Sowing and harvesting there is a long way between. The sowing can be seen as the sowing of dreams and after a long time of progressing and growing, they are harvested with the hope that what is dreamed at the beginning is also true. You can see this as a process on the land but it can also stand for other things in life like love, life experiences or relationships.
Also the series has a calm and authentic feel this because it's a nice contrast with the current society, which I feel sometimes is hastily and complex.
2017 Nostalgia series
Let the image take you back to a feeling or a memory. Every image tells a different story and maybe you can relate to this story or feeling.
2017 Kings party series
This serie is about the people we look up to, think of mums, dads or kings, queens, presidents, important people in your life, in our minds they are the most intelligent and most life experienced people we know. When we grow older we often find to realize that they’re just people and also make mistakes in their life and aren’t always the role models that you want them to be. They are also just humans being human…
I hope people will enjoy looking at the paintings and maybe look further than a nose length. The bird stands for peacefulness and wears a crown because peacefulness is one of the most important things there is, without it we are lost.
2016/2017 Deform series
Everything changes around us over the years as we do.. moments of reconsideration and learning points. Over the years I hope that people learn that it’s of no importance how you look, where you are from or what you do for a living. The only thing of importance (from my own perspective) is truthfulness to yourself, and being able to give and share in life and being surrounded by the people that you want to be surrounded by.
And also please accept people how there are and don’t judge all the time it’s so easy… See it as a challenge to learn more about something or someone before the judgement comes.
So a mix of old and new, figures with a certain emotional load and will tell a colorful beautiful new insight. That’s what I’m trying to achieve with these series.
For our pleasure… to entertain.. more interesting what kind of feeling do we get from this entertainment? Does it brings us happiness and makes us feel better or does it makes us jealous because the other is better at it then ourselves? Can we even experience vicarious shame? Why do we want to be entertained? Is it our lack of imagination, creativity, or are we simply lazy or is it indolence? It also simply distract us and even forget about our day to day life for a little while. It can bring you new insights. I believe that we use some of the information given during the show and it has influence on further process of our life.
One thing is clear.. some of us are born entertainers and some of us simply don’t have a choice..

2015-2016 New series Giving, sharing, reconciliation.
In these times there I felt the need to express myself and making it my purpose to show people the need to love each other and showing affection, giving shelter reconnecting and reconcile again with an other human being. That is which stands central in this collection.
2015- Rumour collection
Everybody has been guilty of spreading a rumour at some point in their life; it’s in our nature to do so. But why do we do this? Is it because we think it’s sound to judge or is it to make us feel better about ourselves? And do we think about the consequences of the rumour on the subject? These are the questions which stand central in the new “Rumour” collection. Portraits of people who spread a story, as well the people who are victim, but are they really a victim?
