Nothing is what it seems, you hear and see things in daily life that seem common normally. Not knowing what’s behind everything, really. I leave out redundant information, like time or place. Titles however, definitely form a very important element. Six years ago my work mainly told of family life and the related family politics, the last four years there has been a shifting to a more universal (and more political) contents. In my present work I also use this as metaphor for the man-woman and relationship conflicts.

Motives in my works are themes like power vs. lack of power, male-female relations, guilt vs. innocence. I produce series of works consisting of different layers like politics and fairy tales; I let these layers connect with one another in order to create a completely new story. This story tells my vision on life and the world...

Schijnheiligheid, macht, onschuld en relaties: de verschillende lagen van verhaal en beeld zijn soms letterlijk zichtbaar door een licht en transparant kleurgebruik in mijn schilderijen. Omdat niets is zoals het in eerste instantie lijkt, gebruik ik dit gegeven om mijn eigen beleving van deze dubbele kant van het leven in beeld te brengen...(Dutch)
