About

Born 1986 in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands where I currently live and work.

Academie Minerva, school of fine arts, Groningen (2005-2011)nellieworks

Right now I’m working freelance as an artist. My work is sometimes happy, sometimes sad, often ironic. I like to show the beauty in life, even if it’s not all about pretty flowers and frolicking in the sun.

“There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in” -Leonard Cohen
