We are all a piece of art, modeled by our surroundings and memories, experiences and discoveries....
One of my first drawings I made on the seat of my parent's sofa. My father was napping at the time and I took his oil colors and painted the
seat of the sofa totally red! I don’t remember his reaction, but red is still my favorite color today and by the way, my parents still let me paint
throughout my childhood and are still encouraging me today with every line I draw.
While other children had no idea of which way to walk in life, I was already jumping with excitement to start my first drawing lessons in
secondary school. I knew as a young girl that creative expression was "my thing," but my exploration into the world of the arts truly began
when I attended The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gent (KASK). .
I finished a degree in Graphic Arts and a second masters in Graphic design, Illustration at Sint-Lucas Visual Arts, in Gent. During those years,
I began exploring the world in a different way. I started travelling by bike to many parts of Europe and tasted South America for the first time.
Surely, all those people I met travelling from Poland to Argentina, from Ireland to Serbia and so many more places, made me the person I am
today, no doubt.
I was always attracted by the Romantic period in the fine arts, so the melancholy in my work is also very present! I love to use all kinds of red,
believing it’s the most honest and pure color we can experience. Dreamy characters with a vacant look, cats, nature in general …those are some
of the things I like to draw.
On my journeys, I always took my little box of watercolors with me and still today it’s still my most favorite way to make illustrations. I’m also
a huge collector of the most silly things on the planet. Yes,I’m very thankful for the kid in me…she helps me see this world every day with new
eyes, so I am never bored. The same kid has still so many dreams to live…and I will help her to realize them so that we can live happily ever
after, surrounded by our Misfits!
