Nijmegen February 2015: The days that artists run their traditional portfolio websites are almost over. In times where we are all connected through social media it is not really helpful to run a static website. People want to share and collect their information with one click. For this reason I’ll redesign my website completely, and also gonna stop with my current blog to integrate parts of it into my new website. In the meantime you can follow me on several social platforms like: Tumblr, Saatchi Art, Artstack, Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn, Soundcloud and Twitter.
