My visual style is characterized by its bold (out)lines and flatness, inspired by manga, anime and Japanese woodblock prints. The human figure often appears in my drawings and paintings.

I work on paper with mixed media: aquarel, gouache, ecoline, acrylic paint, markers and pencils. My interest in Japan and Japanese visual culture is reflected in my work.
