“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”    

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Born at Tegelen on 8 oktober 1981.


I was educated as a stage designer, visual artist and teacher of visual arts. After that, I further specialised in old painting techniques. Since 2015, I specifically focus on sustainability as a cradle-to-cradle artist.
