I’m a Hastings-based artist and writer originally from the Netherlands working across photography, writing, artists’ books, video and live performance.

Graduating in 2019 with an MA Fine Art (Distinction) from Cambridge School of Art, my MA show was awarded the 2019 Cambridge Artworks Residency.

Discovering the potental of the juxtaposition of image, text and form is what drives my practice. My work responds to contemporary social issues and historical events relating to the queer lived experience. New work addresses nature and queerness.

Books from my imprint Negative Press London (  are in international collections including Museum of Modern Art, New York; Wellcome Foundation, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Artists’ Book Collection, Bavarian State Library, Munich, Germany.

My writing appears in anthologies, journals and academic publications.

Exhibitions include Photofusion, London; Bruce Castle Museum, London; Foyles Gallery, London; Dutch Centre, London; Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge; Arnolfini, Bristol; Bury Art Museum, Bury; and Marginal Arts Festival, Roanoke, Virginia, US.
