Art has always been a big part of my life. Ever since I was a little child, I have been fascinated by art, aesthetics and beauty. My parents were always very interested in art and culture and so
I was raised visiting museums, exhibitions and hearing stories about famous artists.
This helped me to develop a deep appreciation and fascination for art. I started drawing when I was only a litle child and I continue doing so today. Through my fascination for surrealism and impressionism, I am developing my own style where I am trying to combine realistic figures with abstract and impressionist elements. But most of all, I try to convey a certain feeling, emotion through my paintings.
That, for me, is the central meaning of art.
Recently I have been painting and receiving commissions more often. My artworks can be seen on various locations in Flanders and I recently participated in a big art-charity project, the Donkey Parade 2019, for which I also manage the social media.
