My paintings take a critical view on different facial behaviours and expressions. From primary to secondary school and until today, the only class I really paid any attention to was Art. I think my obsession with depicting the monotony of the work place and work force started there.

I am constantly sketching and sometimes these sketches develop into more in-depth ideas and expressive images.

While I work with a variety of materials and processes, my methodology remain consistent in each project. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects, they are linked by recurring formal concerns and subject matter. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and forms of the work.

During research and production, new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work. I usually love to use bright colours to show different methods.
