Finally, a new website!
Due to health issues, I have been on a hiatus for quite a bit of time, but I am very proud to say that I am finding my way back, starting with this new website and the announcements of new projects I am working on.
Although I am not working as fast and as much as I would like to, I am still working and getting things done.
If you are curious to know what I am doing at the moment, stay for a bit and look around or send me a message!
I am really excited to be able to share this with you.
For the past ten years, I have been working on and off on the concept for this new project called phase  and it seems like it might be coming along after all this time.
As a an artist that mainly focuses on social issues and works with mixed media, my work is not restricted to two dimensional media. Phase  allows me to explore other ways to share stories and actively engage with people in daily life.
Phase  is an art installation, that combines food and art. Right now, I am working towards a first set up in The Hague. But in order to reach that goal, I need funding, which I think will be possible through crowdfunding.
I will keep my website updated for any news on this project.
If you want to know more about phase  specifically, please visit phase0.nl.
After Maelstrom, I needed some time off to get my mind together before starting on a new film. My health issues really got in the way of my creative work and abilities as an artist. Now that I am getting better, it seems like I am drawn to the projects that have been lingering in my mind for years. Like phase , the idea for Lelijk (Ugly) has been on my mind for a while, but in this stage of my life I feel like I am ready to take on this subject.
When I am not busy with phase , I am focused on Lelijk (Ugly).
Lelijk is a project, that will include a short animated film, a set of illustrations and (small) sculptures.
Although this project will require a lot from me both mentally and emotionally, I do feel like this project may take me to a new place as an artist.
I am currently in the concept stage and although this film will be experimental in its visuals, I am still trying to find the fitting way to tell this story. I will regularly try to share my process on my website.
Opia can now be viewed online via Vimeo, so if you have not seen it yet, you can now!
Two years ago, my colleague and dear friend Annelies Hofman and I decided to team up.
This resulted in Tales for Thought: a collective that focuses on social and environmental themes.
