I have a confession to make:I am not an artist, I am a collector. Or better yet: I craftily create collections of self made artworks and artifacts that look old, in the hope that future people will find and collect them.
The romanticism of old buildings plays an important part in my work. I’ve tried to give that a new form with my ornamental designs and wallpaper ideas coming from my artworks. However, I do realize not everybody is living in an old building, nor does everybody want to live in one. Maybe my ornamental designs can bring you the atmosphere of one instead?
I’ve been experimenting for some time now -with my frames for instance- but it is still in development. They will be in part hand made, and I will add digital ornamental designs, making them a mixture of digital and analog art. More will follow.

Brutal primitive frame
I made it for the 2016 version of the Utu ornament and it was depicted during the 2016 EMOP exhibition. I made it less gold in the end because it was really too shiny. Maybe I made a mistake there, not sure.
