About me

I love cutting and pasting. Preferably with scissors and glue, but also digitally. Bringing two shapes together, that's where it starts. A photo from a magazine and then exactly that one piece. Or to draw a shape myself and cut it out. To nudge, one millimeter to the right or one pixel up. To nudge again. And then to paste!

I look at color, design and clarity. With an eye for detail as well as for the totality. It's a search for balance. Taking as long as necessary.

My work is clear and conceptual, but also a narrative with lots of colorful details. Suitable for business and also children's eyes. I work for magazines, exhibitions, websites and other publications.

I express in an image what can’t be expressed in words and make eye catching visuals that evoke curiosity about the text. In short: I clarify and colorise.
