1998 - 1999 Academy of Architecture, Rotterdam
1989 - 1994 High Academy for the Arts, Arnhem: Architectonic design


The emphasis in my work as a visual artist and designer lies in the conceptualising and designing of art implementations for specifically assigned locations. In my designs I add to the given environment a recognisable identity by interfering with the characteristic elements of this interior or exterior space. The changes I make will be integrated as much as possible in the given circumstances of the location. The choice of material and shade of meaning are based on my associations with that location. I mostly focus on the physical limitations of the space, like floors, walls and ceilings. These elements are the basic inspiration of my work in order to emphasise the existing environment and to accentuate its sensory perceptions without taking up too much extra space.
