Artist Statement

 

My drawings are on big pieces of paper or canvas. In thick black lines, smudges and leaving white spaces, I expose a woman, an emotion of fear, frustration, pain, loneliness, but overall emptiness, passiveness and shame. 
Through a project with Annemarieke van Drimmelen, in 2010, the background became more important and my work started to change. Women that were once up front and in your face are fading in a natural surrounding, and are looking for shelter, a hiding place. The drawings are more abstract and layered.
