I feel a strong urge to harmonise and beautify our wonderful planet.

I do this by creating paintings and rich, multi-layered mixed media artworks. My work mostly portrays glamorous woman who want to seduce the viewer into getting to know them and their stories. Inviting them to self-reflect and explore the limitless possibilities of their minds.

I want to help you transform your house into an inspiring home by adding character, authenticity and originality. I want to encourage dialogue and give you permission to share thoughts, feelings, ideas and impressions you might not ordinarily share. Asking for time out of your busy live to reflect on something other than daily existences.

You’ll often see words in my art because I believe we become what we think and say often. By adding positive affirmations to my work, the owner can find inspiration and motivation on a daily base.

Through the frequent use of gold and blue, two strong colors to which both spiritual and worldly qualities are associated, ‘my girls’ ask to be seen. The bigger than life characters result in pieces that feel familiar and strange at once.

As a child, I dreamed about being an artist and I couldn’t wait until I turned 16 to start my art education. However, when I graduated as a Master in Visual Arts in 1998, I no longer believed in the possibility of turning this dream into a reality. I then trained as a graphic designer and worked for various companies. In 2011, I started a creative agency with my partner, offering design & branding services to B2B clients.

After the death of my parents, I asked myself whether or not I was living the life I really wanted to live. The answer was no. Although I loved lots of pieces of the life, I’d build for myself there was something missing.

I was always working for clients and missed expressing what I was thinking and feeling. I wanted to create without boundaries so I decided to breathe new life into my old dream. Since 2018 I’ve been working fulltime as an artist and sold artwork to clients in Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Australia and Canada.

In my work I combine lessons learned through personal development & spirituality with glitter & glamour. It’s my goal to add beauty, depth and character to your home while encouraging you to live the empowered, joyful life you are meant to live.

Art is a powerful form of expression not only for the artists who create it, but also for those who own it. It allows you to express your individuality and represent your beliefs, feelings, hopes and philosophies.
