self-portrait

(Interdisciplinary) artist, designer, storyteller.

Currently studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven, following first the 'Man and Leisure' , and later the 'Man and Communication' department (Media and culture).


An exploration,  a fight, a dance between the inner-world and the outer-world. Strength, vulnerability and tactility are often recurring inspirations.    Storytelling to provoke emotion and discussion.
To confront with the opposite of the understanding is red thread of the works.

At the moment framing a design collective / educational minor in Italy together with 10 other designers.
