About me

I first touched clay in 2008 in a workshop with Mieke Selleslagh.

This experience encouraged me to start attending evening classes in the Art Academy in Halle in 2011 with Mieke Everaet where I graduated in 2018.

In 2015 I was given the overall award for my work by the Friends of the Art Academy.

While I  was a student in Halle I followed different workshops with renowned international ceramic artist like

Anima Roos (B), Rudie Delange (B), Fritz Rossmann (D), Eric Astoul (la Borne -Fr), Tineke van Gils (NL), Willy van Bussel (NL), Patia Davis (UK), Chris Keenan (UK) and Shozo Michikawa (JP).

My work was selected for different Art Routes in Belgium , in 2016 in Kortemark and Bellingen, in 2017 in Kortrijk and in 2018 in Knokke.

My work is on show in Artine Galery in Ostend.

I was selected for the International Exhibition  2018- 2019  ‘Porselein Spiegelingen – Porcelain Reflections, Students Meet Masters’, curated by Patty Wouters.

In September 2019 I will  throw porcelain in Tajimi, Japan, for three weeks.
