I’m a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts, Berchem, Antwerp. I have lived and worked in Belgium, France and the USA. I maintain a studio in Belgium and continue to develop my skills through workshops and collaborations.

 

I travel extensively and I try to incorporate elements of different cultures into my work. I love to investigate new or unconventional materials and techniques and create contemporary, innovative pieces of jewelry (unique pieces or limited editions). 

 

My work has been exhibited in different countries and publications. It is represented in museums and private collections.
