The power and influence of the image have always been fascinating to me. In what amount create all these media our identity and the way look at ourselves, and at the world around us? During my masters in Film- & Mediastudies in Amsterdam (NL), I focused on subjects as gender, ethics and representation.
During the professional bachelor in Graphic Design, – followed by the postgraduate in Brand & Packaging Design – , at LUCA school of arts in Ghent (B), I took a more creative and practical approach to these subjects and learned how to actually design and make these media myself. The love I have for colors, simplicity, composition & (dis-)balance, as well as paper, texture & text all came together in this education. On the side, I followed classes in Photography to broaden my techniques, which followed by starting another professional bachelor: Photography at Narafi (part of LUCA school of arts) in Brussels to learn more about this amazing and powerful medium.
When possible, I included my just mentioned fascination for the relation between (modern) society and (human) nature in my work, with a special focus on (the representation of) femininity.
