The start of my life was filled with too many rough experiences for a little kid. I developed strange ways to survive: I pretended to be just fine, I acted unbreakable and smiled.
Although I’m not bothered by my past anymore, these ways became a part of me and ooze through in my work. I’m a clown but also deeply hate injustice and everything that’s fake and dishonest.
That is exactly what my work is about, I show the happy side, I chase true joy and energy and at the same time vulnerability and honesty. It is very double. But art is easily unmasked when it is not sincere. My work is about reality and the fragile bright side.
I was educated at the art academy ArtEZ in Arnhem. My work can mostly be found in Amsterdam. On the streets (I do a lot of street art) and in many exhibitions. I have participated in many national and international exhibitions, projects and art fairs. My work is included in private and institutional collections like The Amsterdam court of justice, Tjongerschans collection in Heerenveen, Art Room in Den Helder, The town of Boxtel, Friends of Singer Museum, in Laren.
The Amsterdam Museum even has five pieces by me: they acquired two from my project ‘Art at the Scrapyard’, and they have two pieces of street art in their collection which they ‘stole’. They also bought the ticket she received for illegally posting her work through Amsterdam.
