Biography:

With a traditional training as background, I  find great pleasure in working with the traditional processes and materials, combining them with a contemporary aesthetic.

I aim for rough, but elegant simplicity, a clean expression with an occasional humorous touch. The surfaces that emerges in the process of making facinates me, and are left matt and raw so show the metal from a different side. The gemstones I use must match my liking for the unusual and slightly unconventional.
