what about me?

One of my main fascinations in life is the relationship we human beings have with our (natural) selves in our ever changing environment. And it seems like we are at a point where we really need to find a new life balance on many aspects!

With all upcoming technological infrastructures in this extreme commercialized world, how can we still connect to our ‘true’, core identity? Our perception of the world we live in, and the way we look at ourselves, is highly dominated by techniques & media that surround us all the time.   

So why not take advantage of the power and influence of these media and create a world that contributes to a truly wonderful way of being?

My education journey has drawn my attention to the relationship between the media and our sense of self. First in my Master on Media & Ethics, later in my Bachelors in Graphic Design and Branding & Packaging Design, and currently during my Bachelor in Photography.

As being a woman, I could hardly identify with the way we have been displayed and objectified for the past few decades, maybe even centuries. I thank God, or Source, for that is finally changing, although there is still a lot of work to do.

I sincerely believe in a loving world, starting with the love we have for ourselves and carry out in our connection with all life around us. This of course includes our relation we have with animals, water and all other parts of the tremendous wonders of nature. Therefore, these are the subjects I focus on mostly within my work.

We can’t have enough love, beauty & strength on this planet, is my personal opinion.

All is One,
One Love!
