The main materials that I use for my drawings are a variety of fine liners. In my exhibitions, I print my illustrations on real wood, using screen printing techniques. I buy the wood at a local store in Utrecht that sells many different types of wood. This store is known for preserving the beautiful wood of local trees when they have to be cut down, giving the trees a second life. I only work with one tree at a time, to keep every illustration that is printed special and connected to the earth. Every illustration tells a story and so does the wood it has been printed on.
