Designing, daydreaming, working with colors and materials is what has inspired me since I was young. Creating something tangible out of words, ideas, images and dreams, is what I enjoy doing the most!
This is what motivated me to study Spatial Design at Nimeto in Utrecht and Production Design at the Dutch Film and Television Academy in Amsterdam. Since graduating in 2005 I have been working as a freelance art director and set decorator on various feature films and television productions.
In addition to my freelance work I strive to develop myself by following specialized courses and workshops: furniture making, painting, drawing, ceramics and advanced spatial design. Currently I am studying photography at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam to learn more about visual story telling.
Besides my work as an art director and set decorator, I enjoy designing and making pillows/teddy’s, calendars, interior solutions like tables and cabinets, small decors for photography and stop motion animations.
I have worked on a variety of productions as an art director, set decorator/ property master and set dresser. From an opera film to supermarket commercials, from art house films and TV-series to epic and historical (action) films. On this website you can see a selection of my art direction/set decoration work and my photography work.
