Dirty Blue Watercolor

Since my last post, making watercolors has gone from a part of me making art, to a small business on its own! I love discovering pigments, their properties and exploring new mixes.

While working with these pigments I found out that some colors aren’t made anymore.

That’s why I started a small crowdfunding project on GoFundMe to find some of those pigments that are left, purchase them and make them into watercolors. You can find my project and the details here

Watercolors can be found on Etsy and Instagram.

New Reefcrawler collection during the exhibition

A new way of working

3D printing isn’t the future anymore, it’s here, now. If you need a high resolution print of the Venus of Milo, it’s just a click away. But with the ease that comes with the new technology, people will more easily lose originality as well.

The creative mind of the individual is what makes us unique, that’s why I made this piece.

This is a draft of the final work, to be seen this weekend. 

I’ve made a choice to only make ”one-of” sculptures, I’m not using or making moulds. I can make more sculptures of the same creature, but they will always look different. With this piece, I’m not trying to simulate a version of my previous work, but to show a different way of looking at things.

New drawings and more on their way…

I just finished some new drawings. During the next weeks, I will keep posting new ones on the drawings page on my website.


So I’m quite busy printing my frogs, doing some Photoshop, drawing and designing some new creatures and sculpting a Reefcrawler or two.


To be continued…

First 3D printed copy of a sculpture

A new way of working that coexists with the old way. 

I’ll post an update next week on this, but this is the first rough print of a sculpture I scanned.

Just a quick update while it’s hanging in an exhibition. But this is the finished Blue Collection.nw

A better picture will follow asap..

Something new, again?


In my spare time I like to try some new things with my work. That can start with paint experiments, making tools for textures in the clay or digital work.

So I started with checking out Sculptris. Working with a mouse (instead of a tablet) gave me the result in the picture… I like it! Going to try some more very soon.
