Live drawing is at the root of my work, it is what I enjoy and can lose myself in. Movement is key, to be immersed within it, as well as to capture it. Risk in the act-of-making is what I continuously seek. There has to be some kind of challenge that holds my attention and keeps my response alive.
I was born and raised in The Netherlands, where I played competitive tennis in my youth. I came to Scotland to do a PhD in Coastal Engineering. I have always been passionate about drawing and after my degree I received private tuition from several well-established artists.
My work can interact with ‘anything’, so far collaborations have included dance, opera, music, lyrical text and verbatim, offering a multi-disciplinary and multi-platform experience through audio-visual installations and live stage performances.
Whether it is on a digital platform, in a public space or on a live stage at the core of the interactive experience lies high quality art with a distinctive style, which can be made tangible into stand-alone art pieces and lower value products, such as digital prints and limited-edition imagery for industry product commercialisation.
