a keen eye

‘…because the quality of the works, as well as the effort in creating the works, reveal a mentality and ability to translate and solve several problem areas in an effective, communicative way…’

…from the juror’s motivation to award the Gosse Petersen Prijs 2012, graduating the Arts & Design College. And proud of it!

education

[ej-oo-key-shuh n]

‘Born curious. Ever since trying to expand my horizon. In education, but also in travelling, in cooking, in meeting people, in listening music and reading.

I like solving problems. Using technology, creativity eand inventivity to move forward. Either with my Mac, paper, ink or camera,
… but always with a keen eye.
