Melancholy has been my friend ever since I was a child, I was scared and easily overwhelmed. Growing up with a dying sister destroyed my innocence, it gave me a feeling of solitude that has never gone away. Over the years I suffered multiple depressions and at the age of 25 I got diagnosed with borderline. In May 2017 I graduated Cum Laude at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam with a project in which I studied my life as a ‘borderliner’. In this project I mainly showed the exterior, the literal actions. At the beginning of 2018 I started a new project called ‘The Maze’ in which I’m exploring my inner world, the inner world of someone with a mental illness. My art comes from an intimate place, by using my own experiences in life I want to take the viewer into a world that is invisible to most people. I want them to feel it, relate to it. Cause an experience.
