on a journey

in word and image.

i design. i write. i photograph.

I balance at the junction between design and the humanities as I’m educated in both architectural engineering and religious sciences.

I am an interdisciplinary nomad, making the world my home by discovering, interpreting and connecting its various pieces in creation.

Feeling ‘senang’ is Indische slang that is diversely interpreted as a blend of feeling at ease, content, happy and untroubled. It finds its origins in Malay language and is adopted as an idiom into contemporary Dutch tongue as a remnant of Dutch colonisation in Indonesia.

laten we liefde.

I balance at the junction between design and the humanities due to an education in both architectural engineering and religious sciences.

In 2020 I published the poetry novel  laten we liefde. In laten we liefde I write about love in an era that is marked by modern challenges. How performance pressure, materialistic means and technology contribute to the relational bumps in the road. 

The poems contain Dutch proza, and vary from roundel to haiku and sonnet in a modern context, and aim to entice young and old to the world of linguistic arts in a satiric and moving way.
