What made you want to become an artist? Do you regret it?
As a kid, when I got asked the question what I wanted to be when I was older, I always replied I wanted to do something with drawing. I read a lot of comic books back then and the realisation that people made those and that that was their job, seemed like the best job in the world.
With a little detour to studying to become a hairdresser I finally got into art school. It would have been a funny plot twist, but I can’t say I’m regretting it.
What would you use in your studio to defend yourself with if you had to?
The closest I get to a gun is my staple gun and I definitely feel cool using it.
How do you prepare for a good day in the studio?
A good day cannot start without a good breakfast, which includes a freshly pressed orange juice, a big cup of coffee and some “tartines”. That way I can be fully awake and ready to work.
What do you do outside your art practice?
At the moment I don’t have a job next to my art practice, the place I work at is closed during the lockdown. But next to my art practice I work at an Escape Room and operate the rooms they have there.
What is your favourite part of creating your work?
My favourite part is when I get lost in the making, a spontaneous feeling that is not so easy to reach. It’s a short moment, where the brain disconnects from reality.
When the brush and the eyes are having fun and I’m not in control.
