NOW

After my graduation in 2015 I started working freelance on styling, graphic design and art direction projects. Besides freelancing I worked as a graphic artwork designer at WE Fashion. At the moment I am working at Hudon's Bay in The Netherlands.


&THEN

.. Maybe you already noticed on my website; while attending the University of Arts in Rotterdam I loved to create experimental works. These were often trend forecasts translated into new materials.
At the moment I am not creating these autonomous works, nevertheless I will always have interest in the relationship between human actions and earths depleting resources.
