About The Artwork

When I was living in New York, I painted everything that surounded me. This watermelon in front of the bookshelf struck me as a very nice unarranged still life. The painting is made with hight quality thick glossy acrylic on hight guality linen. Stretched on a sturdy wooden frame and ready to hang.

The start of my life was filled with too many rough experiences for a little kid. I developed strange ways to survive: I pretended to be just fine, I acted unbreakable and smiled. Although I’m not bothered by my past anymore, these ways became a part of me and ooze through in my work. I’m a clown but also deeply hate injustice and everything that’s fake and dishonest. That is exactly what my work is about, I show the happy side, I chase true joy and energy and at the same time vulnerability and honesty. It is very double. But art is easily unmasked when it is not sincere. My work is about reality and the fragile bright side. I was educated at the art academy ArtEZ in Arnhem. My work can mostly be found in Amsterdam. On the street (I do a lot of street art) and in many exhibitions. One of those is at the Amsterdam Museum, that has five pieces by me: they acquired two from my project ‘Art at the Scrapyard’, and they have two pieces of street art in their collection which they 'stole'. (They also bought the ticket she received for illegally posting her work through Amsterdam.)
