“People interested in art are often fascinated by artists’ statements about their work. The only way to really learn about an artist’s work, which is all trial and error, is to just look at what the artist does instead.”

 

My passion for art

For as long as I can remember I have drawn. It is like a second nature. In school, drawing during classes was of course never allowed, but I would draw on my legs or petticoat with a piece of chalk or even chocolate when I got the chance. When nothing was at hand, I used to draw pictures in my mind. As a child I had a strong urge to create, my parents gave me the space to develop myself. I started painting, discovered the possibilities of clay, plaster textiles, wood, I worked with different materials. Today that child is still in me, I love what I do, it’s like breathing, I can not do without.
