I'm an Amsterdam based artist/designer hoping to illuminate magic in real stories. I find artist bios daunting to write. But I enjoy getting my hands dirty and adapting my visual language to different stories in a raw and playful way. In my personal work I record my environments using gathered twigs. I believe that this makes me the instrument that aids in nature’s own storytelling. I'm excited to bridge the physical and digital, science and spirit, east and west. I'm a graduate of Central Saint Martins with a degree in Graphic Communication Design (moving image pathway). Coming from a much more illustration and experimental animation background, I'm currently a Jr. Graphic designer at TomTom's in-house creative agency. Previous clients have included The Independent, Mutoid Waste co., Pulse films, and Electric Light Studios.

My project 'Togather' was the grand winner of Sony Talent League First Edition! Togather aims to be a platform where you can turn any found object into a digital brush. Gather and make your mark! You can download the available brushpacks for both Procreate & Photoshop created during Sony Talent League right here: https://togather.fun/resources
