What is your specialty, what makes your work unique? Or place your artist's statement.
I call myself a visual artist, but I’m actually a jack-of-all-trades who practices various disciplines. I create art objects, landscape & architecture photography, build and design furniture and interiors, and I am a graphic designer.
I’m a designer who always wants to do everything slightly different. I was once told that I have a ‘making intelligence’: Someone who wants to rediscover everything by creating it herself. That’s right. I strongly believe: “If something does not exist, why not create it yourself, but then just slightly different”. That’s exactly what I do.
My work is a constant quest for the best way to interpret my thoughts and ideas, trying to touch upon a deeper feeling that arises from unpredictable shapes. This layering returns in its own way in every design.
As a designer, I am guided and inspired by the infinity of those shapes. Looking for new uniqueness and aesthetics. By observing the environment closely, I notice that there is always a story behind a certain shape. Shapes that can be represented in a new way through my designs.
By digging deeper into the underlying thoughts of spaces, materials and objects,
my work often results in a complex and dynamic installation with a story.
A story that must be told by the art itself.
What are your ambitions? What do you want to be in five years?
In the next vife years I will be actively involved in my company Sqeleton Art. Sqeletons will be sold and they will be featured in various exhibitions. I think it would be great to learn other crafts and work with artists from other disciplines to combine Sqeleton art with furniture and other materials.
What is the most important thing you have learned during your studies?
During my studies, I have learned to be able to take a little step back. Not only at times when you are mentally stuck, but also when the project is running smoothly.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are often not mistakes but surprising new insights.
I have also learned to work both independently and in a group.
