Education: Art teacher, Graphic design, Social Work
Work: I run an art studio for people with a psychiatric background, addiction and criminal issues. In the studio, we strive to create an atmosphere where people feel at ease without the fear of failing. In this ambience, people are being encouraged to create.
Personal: I do a lot of portraits, mostly mixed media. The theme of my work is to represent the beauty in imperfection; I feel attraction for faces that deviate somehow and try to reproduce some vulnerability in the skin. I still feel that I haven’t achieved that what I strive for in my portraits yet. Maybe I never will, that’s the destiny of an artist I think, to never achieve that what you strive for.
