I am a Dutch-born American artist currently living in Denmark. I visualize our contemporary human experience from a conceptual, philosophical and intuitive viewpoint. Recent work has explored alienation, migration and identity, and our recent worldwide struggle to breathe. The last several years I have worked primarily with installation. This format allows me to completely envelop the viewer, which these wide-ranging topics seem to call for.

I am drawn to working with local, used textiles and other local materials like wood or seaweed because 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.

I studied art and design at Atelier Hourdé and Ecole Camondo in Paris, at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC (BFA), at Parsons School of Art and Design in New York, at School for Visual Arts in New York, at the Art Students League in New York, and at Haystack Mountain School in Maine.
My work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Germany and Denmark.
