Born in the spring of 1991. I studied Illustration and animation at academie Minerva in the Netherlands. I like to draw with pencils, paint or make collages.

Because I studied both fine arts and illustration/animation I have the feeling i'm more in between those two. In my graduation project I tried to put these together by focusing more on telling my own story and visualise it in a narrative and associative way.

Besides being an illustrator I always wanted to work for a newspaper. Being that at the worst printed newspaper the Volkssnakkel I reached one goal!

After my graduation, friends and me formed a zine/art collective called We Zine Wel. We have a daily blog with everyday a post about the day. We also publish zines together with various themes (so all our different styles have something in comparison)

Furthermore I focus on projects around mail, nature and making zines. The last years I specialized in various printing techniques such as silkscreen, lithography and Risography.
