SKETCH BOOK

BLOG × Drawing in a sketchbook has always been hard for me. Or maybe more for my perfectionism. Being a perfectionist can paralyze you to the point of not starting anything at all. Over the years I’ve been working on it and letting go of my idea of perfect. Instead I focus on just having…

THE SUN

JUST A CARD

NEW WORK × The last weeks I’ve been working on a lot of new animal prints. I’ve printed them on cards and will be selling them at a store in Maastricht, Jodenstraat 32 (Jouw Marktkraam). Pop by if you are in the neighbourhood. Or let me know if you are interested in one if you…

MUSIC I LISTEN TO WHEN I CREATE

BLOG × Do you have a playlist especially made for when you are drawing/painting/carving? I do! I need melodic music that easily brings me into a different world.
