Recently graduated in art history and cultural sciences, I am looking for a place to build bridges between people and arts. If you have directions, contact me!

Art is my passion. I love looking at it, reading about it and finding out more about who made it and when and why. My main field of interest is old master paintings. The beautiful way the works are painted, the outlook it gives us on the way people used to live and the meaning hidden behind the depicted objects excites me.

Music and Writing are my favorite pastime. Writing reviews and articles or doing interviews for 3voor12 Limburg and Zwart Goud. Beside this, my friends and me founded a cultural production company called Nightscapes Productions. We organize chamber concerts with local and national artists playing in an intimate setting.

I love: stories (to read, tell and write), Rembrandt, playing my guitar, the leaves in autumn, photographs, walking my lease dog and humming subconscious melodies.
I loathe: organs, injustice, dishonesty and people who nag about immutable things such as the weather.
