In 2021 I graduated at the Wackers Academie of Art in Amsterdam.
I focus on daily scenes and subjects. The shadow of the tree on the tiles; the sunlight in the room; the view from one room through the other; the reflections on the floor; and the rhythm of lines in the stairwell. Figurative, but with a twist. Not just a nice picture, but everyday subjects with a melancholy touch. It's about time and stillness. It's about our transient live. Melancholic and beautiful. With a main focus on light and dark, strong lines and reflections.
If you look at my work, you wouldn't tell that I'm actually a chaotic dreamer who could loose herself in time and space. As a child I did. Along the way I created structure in my daily life. I learnt to organize my living space. I never used an agenda so all that mathers is in my head, on small papers and in my sketchbook.
Moving to Bali created a new kind of chaos. The sound of bikes and birds, the overwhelming colors, the organic forms of the jungle and chaotic architecture took me completely out of my comfort zone. It took almost a year to reorganize and discover structure and stillness in my new living space.
Bali's ongoing rituals and spirituality are my new inspirators. I got caught by Bali's morning and night sights. Bali's magical sunrises and downers. I started to paint my daily view from the villa that we rented. The stillness of the massive concreet that captures and frames the awakening fields. At the end of the day a new scene appears. Every second is a changing mystery. I can't stop watching. I want to capture every unique second and make it last forever.
