grafiek – beeldende kunst 


In 2013 I finished my master Cultural Science, since that time I have published some texts.

Most of my texts are in Dutch, for translation of the subjects feel free to contact me.

As an artist I’m very interested in the way meaning production and interpretation takes place.
Recently I have contributed to some publications with multiple writers and artists.
