As a visual artist I am fascinated by many topics and I love taking inspiration from many different corners. Having broad fascinations makes me what I call a creative centipede, which is also reflected in the variety of media I use to express my concepts: illustration, animation and interactive experiences. With an eye on the theme and goal of the project I will search for which medium will be the best fit.
I have always been fascinated by the small things this crazy big world has to bring us; from small details of our history to weird little insects crawling around in our gardens. I think a lot of people fail to notice many of the details of the world around them, due to modern hyper-speed society. I see a lot of beauty in illuminating these details for my audience with my illustrations, animations and interactive experiences.
To this end I enjoy always exploring new techniques and tools to acquire, allowing me to pick the best match for any concept I am working on. Developing my skills with new software and other tools lets me bring out my own artistic style in any medium I work with.
When I am done working, I try to pet every cat I come across.
