I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil, but only in the last few years developed a preference for digital art and animation. Although I was born in Holland and have dutch nationality, I've lived all over the world, including the United States, Indonesia, France and Belgium. Drawing had always been my self-taught hobby. It was only when I finished high school and decided to study animation that I began to pursue art as a career. I studied in Ghent (Belgium) for a year and then moved back to my home country to study at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht in Hilversum. Besides animation, I continue to make illustrations and paint digitally on the side.
