Born: 30 march 1992
Current residence: Ten Boer, Groningen, the Netherlands
Education: Minerva art school (Autonome beeldende kunst), year 3 of 4

I’m a writer, a musician and an artist. On this website, I only show my art.
I started drawing when I was fourteen. They were all portraits at the time, first celebrities and later they became fantasy creatures, like angels, fairies and vampires. It wasn’t until later that I broadened my horizon to painting and digital art.

I have a very old-fashioned view on art. I think art should be esthetic – above all, it should be that – and whereas people nowadays think art should all be new and exciting, I don’t think that’s the point at all. Not my point, anyway. I just want to make people happy. It may sound stupid, but that’s really just my point. That, when people look at my work, they feel something meaningful and be happy to have experienced it.
I do not look for truth, just for reason.

Is my work art? I don’t know, and I don’t think I care. I think the word art has been stripped of all its meaning and nowadays only exists to keep itself going.

In my work, I use elements of the supernatural, nature, and mystery. Colour is really important for me, as well as symbolism, stories, beauty, and tragedy. And horror, maybe, although that may not be the right word for it.
