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 focuses on identity, migration and nature as a means to connection.

These wide-ranging topics often call for installation work, which allows me to completely envelop the viewer. As a centering counter-practice, I also create stand-alone pieces where I explore ideas, develop form and test techniques through 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. Each project is quite different from previous ones, giving me the opportunity to bring various skills and considerations into play.
