I come from a background where my (grand)parents repaired things endlessly. The idea of fixing stuff has stayed with me strongly.
You can repair broken items or you can create new things out of it. Nothing is waste.
Even broken pieces have purpose and meaning.
But can you fix a broken relation- or friendship? Can you repair events that went wrong?
Wanting to repair more than just stuff involves the experience of transformation. Some form of imperturbability is present in all my work.
To me, making art has got to do with sharing the inner space. Sharing is in a way beyond human beings,
and yet in a way within human capacity.
I studied at ArtEZ, Arnhem, the AKV/St.Joost Academy of Art and Design (Fine Arts), Den Bosch and at the Radboud University (Psychology), Nijmegen.
I worked for Derde Wal for 5 years and I have a lot of experience in art education on different levels.
