Artist Declaration

I have studied fairytales and literature through my work, Lolita and Little Red Ridinghood being the ones of most influence on what I do, but it all started with the Book 'Een nacht om te vliegeren' (a perfect night to fly a kite) by the Dutch author Renate Dorrestein. Where women seem to have lost their innocence, I search. I look beyond the appearance, the forced erotic facade, layers of makeup and luxury clothes. My models are porn stars, supermodels and actresses, my drawings are their innocence and frailty, their insecurity and sweetness. Here in their humanity is where I believe true sensuality can be found.
