I was born in Belgium in 1972.
After high-school in Leuven I went on to the university to study economics.
After university I went on to the Art School and studied fashion design for two years.
I organised a course 'how to design and make shoes' for myself in Indonesia for 3 months, after which I returned to Belgium and worked as a shoedesigner for two years.
Later I began working as computerprogrammer and grafic designer.
in 2000 I started schoenen.be and since then I have been programming for shoeprofessionals in Belgium and abroad.
During all this time I never stopped drawing. It is something whith which I began when I was an infant en I haven't stopped since.
My work is mostly figurative with a special focus on eyes.
I never work with a model. I pick up a pencil or brush and start drawing, painting until I have something that I like.
