I grew up in the Dutch countryside among the cows and sheeps in a small village called ‘s-Gravendeel. After doing a New York Film Academy summer camp at Harvard, I went to the big city, Rotterdam, to study Art and Animation at the Willem de Kooning Academy.
In the first year at the Willem the Kooning, I worked with different materials and techniques for my animations and the one that I most like to work with was paper. I create three dimensional objects that include intricate details by using flat sheets of paper. I like to keep the shapes of my models simple, like the low polygon computer models.
