Born in Rotterdam, NL

Lives & works in Boston, MA


I am a Boston based artist, interested in playing with the scale of familiar textures and forms to create new objects. Currently, I am working on two tangential bodies of work exploring the the layered texture of roof shingles, using either linoleum - nostalgic of our kitchen floors - or the paint sticks created as a biproduct of my job as a finisher in a fine art framing shop. For these pieces, I laminate wood to carve as the inner form, and carefully nail "shingles" in one by one to create the finished surface. I am working on creating an object series related to this series of sculptural wall hangings, keep posted!
