About The Artwork

This is the bathroom of a house where I was babysitting. I did that just to be able to see interiors of the houses where I worked, to make sketches of all the different interiors I got to see that way. The project was called 'Home is where the artist'. I paint and draw what I see around me, I try to capture everything in my own style, in lines mostly. Everyday things that surround me get new life, become caracters, individuals when I portray them. The reason for my drawing and painting is to find out what caracter is behind the object I draw. It is out of pure curiosity that I paint. I want to get to know the world according to me. Acrylic on canvas, 100x80cm, sides painted, no frame needed, ready to hang.

The start of my life was rough. 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 street (I do a lot of street art) and in many exhibitions. One of those is at the Amsterdam Museum, that 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.)
