"With the world as a canvas, I'm painting for paradise."

In 2015 the artist within me could not resist any longer and I knew it was time to take a leap of faith and do what I love. The beautiful journey of finding myself as an artist started. Within months of nonstop creating, I decided to pack up my things and book a one-way ticket to the other side of the world, to stimulate my senses and find inspiration. I ended up traveling around Central America and the Caribbean for over 9 months exchanging murals and illustrations for food and shelter. Currently, I’m based in the Netherlands providing various brands with my artwork.

Every customized piece I create is a unique journey I invest my heart and soul into; from big murals to smaller illustrations. My style has a graceful and authentic character. Even though most of my work are timeless black and white pieces with strong line- and dot-work I also enjoy using a wider color palette combined with different techniques.

My dream is to combine my artwork with traveling as the influence of different cultures and environments inspires me tremendously. The world is a canvas and my intention is to leave an imprint behind with my creations
