I work as a freelance animator / director producing work with a handmade feel by mixing new techniques with the traditional craft.
Every message or story deserves a tailor-made approach which leads me to work in a broad variety
of forms ranging from traditional drawn animation, cut-out, 2D digital animation, but also stop-motion with objects, puppets or clay.
Besides working as a freelancer I create independent animation productions written and animated by myself and work in artistic cooperations with other artists as much a spossible.
Born in Eindhoven the Netherlands in 1985 as the child of two ceramists I was brought up with an overabundance of materials to play with. From an early age I became fascinated by clay and drawing; fascinations that persist to the present day. After graduating from the animation department at the art academy St Joost in Breda, I started my practice as freelance director / animator. From my studio space in Breda I have worked on a diverse range of commissioned Projects spanning from educational films and music video’s to installations and video projections for museums and theater. Besides this commissioned work I have continued to work on independent films in various traditional techniques like Claymation, drawn animation and stop-motion with puppets.
