I am a Dutch illustrator and collage artist, living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up in The Netherlands, I have been creative in one way or another most of my life.
My mixed collages are all original, analog works that consist of found paper, photographs and embroidery thread, which I use to weave together new narratives on paper. I love to experiment with different materials and re-use old images and paper. In doing so, it is my hope to bring new life to these materials, so they can be enjoyed and appreciated once again.
For this 'Strings Attached' series of collages, I wanted to visualize women controlling men and men controlling women - an ongoing power struggle within our species. It's a theme that in light of current events still gives us food for thought and lots of room for improvement.
