illustrations

Even though i do have a certain signature,  my passion for mixing techniques and being challenged by materials make that the look of my illustrations differ. Cut out drawings in 3d decors, drawing with mud, fish prints, photographs of unrecognizable details, all altered or put together in photoshop. I am really gratefull to live in the digital era, it enables me to put together whatever image i have in my head. Opposite to that is my work in linoleum, an unmercifull and challenging material.

I was inspired by Shiva, the goddess with many arms, to illustrate the balancing act between activities and lack of time.
