In 2011, I started a creative agency, MIST, with my partner. We offered graphic design, photography, and video services to B2B clients. We didn’t know anything about running a business, so it was a great learning experience with lots of ups and downs, but I am so delighted that we decided to quit our jobs and ‘give it a go.’
After losing my parents and getting into personal development, I realized I wasn’t doing what I was meant to do. I liked working for clients but missed exploring my own ideas. I noticed I was getting jealous of professional artists, and slowly it dawned on me that I had learned the skills I needed to sell and promote my artwork. In 2018 I gradually stopped working for clients and went back to creating art.
I’m now working full-time as an independent artist in Antwerp, Belgium. At age 45, I feel like I’m finally learning how to play this fantastic game called life, and I love it.
Next to creating art, I love connecting with different kinds of people to hear their stories. In 2019 I organized a pop-up gallery with weekly changing guest artists. This experience brought me so much joy, and I feel like it’s the perfect addition to my art practice since I find lots of inspiration in conversations with others.
Besides organising my own shows, I also attend art fairs, events and work with Caroline Jespers Gallery.
In the summer of 2022 I decided to share what I’ve learned so far with other artists in my online course, De Kunstacademie 2.0.
