I am a multi-disciplinary, Dutch-born American artist and designer living in Denmark. I explore our contemporary human experience from a conceptual, philosophical and intuitive viewpoint. My international upbringing, broad education, and previous work as a creative director in New York, have influenced me to think globally and conceptually. My recent work has focused on alienation, migration and identity, as well as the current worldwide struggles around self-determination and the ability to breathe.

The last several years I have worked primarily with mixed-media installation. This format allows me to completely envelop the viewer, which these wide-ranging topics seem to call for. As a balancing counter-practice, I also create stand-alone pieces in the form of fiber sculpture, drawing, and painting.

I am drawn to working with local, used textiles and other local materials like wood or seaweed. They have a history and hold meaning relating to the specific energy of their location. It also means that each project is quite different from previous ones, giving me the opportunity to explore different skills and considerations.

Atelier Hourdé, Paris, France
Ecole Camondo, Paris, France
The Corcoran School of Art, Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA (BFA)
