When I saw the typecases I fell in love…
Took part in: 2016, 2017, and 2019
I started printing in 2010 at my art academy.
At first I made a lot of drypoint etchings, monotypes and after that especially etching in copper plates.
When I attended my internship in Graphic Studio Hilversum I learned all the old graphic techniques.
I started with monoprinting and silkscreen-printing but there I saw the typecases and I fell in love…
In ‘Grafisch Atelier Hilversum’; a big graphic workshop in the centre of Holland.
I am always reading several books at the same time.
> 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (I think this book is the biggest I have ever read)
> The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
> The secret of the Wildwood by Tonke Dragt (the childrens book on this stack)
I really want to have a Sofadi printing-press.
I am a freelance graphic designer. But these days I am more of a teacher; giving workshops in Museum The Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam.
I use silkscreen and sometimes etching for illustration work in my graphic designs.
