Abstract - proces - artistiek onderzoek

After studying art at St. Joost, Rietveld, Kunstakademie Dusseldorf and practising in Berlin, Cambridge and Yorkshire I eventually returned to the Netherlands in 2008 and have been living in Rotterdam ever since.
I make large composite drawings. Textures and structures of the physical environment in which I work have a direct influence on the outcome of the work. Whilst in this proces I explore the limits and possibilities of this environment. It is a systematic investigation into the (un)limited space.
