I’m a freelance-artist and architect-teacher living nearby Antwerp, Belgium. 

I graduated as an architect in 2017 with a thesis on comics. Both have been a huge influence and source inspiration for my artistic work. My general expertise bacause of this lies in constructive drawing and perspective space.

As a self-taught illustrator I tend to get mixed up in various projects ranging between architectural-presentation-drawings to more imaginary machines and figures. I usually start out with line-art (by hand or digital) and add colors digitally. Occasionally my observational drawing also gets mixed up for an illustration.

My observational drawing goes back to my roots in architecture and is the main reason why I fell in love with drawing in the first place. I absolutely love to explore and draw on location in my sketchbooks. It makes me really experience places and the people around me. Over the years I started taking commissions, making prints and managed to enter several exhibitions.

Recently I started taking online classes to develop myself further in digital illustration and concept design. Besides my artistic work and learning, I have been developing the “sketch-atlas” project at the University of Hasselt where I also started teaching since 2019.
