Taken with my Game Boy Camera and edited in Photoshop
I'm an artist currently living in Brussels, Belgium.
As a teenager I always had lots of interests like reading, science, drawing and playing video games, but I never really had a clear view on what I wanted to do.
My secondary education was in sciences & mathematics. Although these subjects still interested me by the end of my studies, I didn't want to pursue them.
My first higher studies were in Digital Arts and Entertainment, which focuses on game design and development. I was part of the first group of students trying out a brand new bachelor's course in Belgium. After a satisfying internship and my graduation I felt like I learned a lot, but nothing really in depth.
That's why I decided to study another 3 years of Animation. This is where I learned a lot more about animation, drawing, composition and much, much more.
After 6 years of studying and obtaining 2 bachelor degrees I felt ready for some work experience. One of my teachers contacted me to work on a project in his studio in Brussels.
Since then I have worked on several projects: long feature animated movies, children's series and the occasional commercial. Besides work for studios I'm often asked to make flyers, posters or (promotional) videos.
Drawing is something I really love to do and I often go to the zoo or a museum for some real (or still) life sketching. I also enjoy the creative thrill of trying out new things, like pixel art or designing t-shirts.
The reason why I mention I'm a christian is because I'm a follower of Jesus and I try to follow Him in every area of my life.
I also believe that the art I make:
- can reflect the (re-)creational character of the triune God
- can show the goodness, hope and salvation which is found in Jesus
- can reveal the ugliness of sin and its effect on this world
Of course, since work often involves working with and for other people and/or clients, the above doesn't always seep through what I make.
