I am a Designer

My Story

Like most artists, I was drawing my whole life.
At the end of a school year, my agenda has turned into some kind of a comic book.
But I took my art more seriously to a higher level when I was following art education.
I was very determined when following a Maya class at the SAE institute in Amsterdam.
After this 6 months course, I continued with Maya for 10 years. But lost interest because of the not so user-friendly user interface.
And in August 2021, I started with Blender. Oh my, that felt like coming home, to be busy with 3D art again…

StarWars Project

Drawing, The foundation of all art. So I developed myself through several courses to the level of photorealistic drawing.

Video Editing

It's so rewarding what you can do with video editing. From promo to Fitness videos and 3D animations..

My art development

It is impossible not to develop my art level further. The urge to improve continues to drive me... always!.
