Born in 1990 in Tilburg, the Netherlands
I live and work in Brussels and Tilburg
I make textile work to investigate my own position within the art sphere. Simultaneously, I investigate to make these tapestries. My practice thrives on tactility, attention, meaningful labor, and small and bigger coincidences and insights along the way. This is why I could never outsource the craft after making the sketch and what makes me value all entangled material and non-material influences as equal to my own ideas and decisions.
