strips/cartoons - figuratief - mens

She is always searching for new ways to tell a story through images. Her most recent work displays a gravitation towards philosophical observations of the human identity with a clear fascination for when the psyche fails us as a single being or as a group. Not only is she fascinated with the current state of affairs but she also explores how these ideas and observations were explained in older times. This gives a classic and timeless feel to her paintings and drawings. Although confronting at times, her work not only functions as a mirror for modern society but also displays a lot about the mind of the author herself. She translate this in her paintings, drawings and comics.
