Pick Your Role Models


After my graduation at KABK in 2020 and in the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wasn’t drawing a lot which was a habit I desired to change. Together with the lack of inspiration due to no concert nor visiting exhibitions - I started drawing a person with a quote who inspired me, every day.

In connection to my work ‘Thou Told Me’ and ‘Pussy Politics’ on the topic of the importance of role models, I created postcards from my illustration and called them ‘Pick You Role Model’-postcards. I sold them online, made commission and they were sold in three different shops in NLD.

Mixed Media

Royal Academy of Arts


During the 4 years of studying Interactive Media Design in the Hague, The Netherlands - I focused on social interventions and tried to find ways to incorperate my fascination in politics in my work. I created political events or campaigns, discoverd my love for animation and wrote my own songs.
