Living in an origami world

This started -just like my trees- all with an experiment, and one of my best friends, Silvia. In the periode I made the first picture of this series, I wanted to do some more creative photographic things. I already let my creativity burst in my makeup work, but as far as photography and photoshop, this was still unknown territory for me.

A project I did together with another wonderful makeup artist, Lieve Humbeeck. My colleague, companion, friend and second mother. Someone who was there from the start, helped me out many times and backed me up, also when I was at my worst. For those of you who don't know me in person: when you see me I'm quiet but when you know me, I'm a really social person, and even though I do a lot on my own, somethimes I really need those moments where I get to work together with other creative souls, to create bigger and better things.


What do you think? Does it? Can you be really good at just the one thing, or at a few things simultaneously? Can you combine different fields without having to give in to loss of quality in one job or the other? A lot of people, even people really close to me, or persons I look(ed) up to, told me that this just wasn’t possible —that in the end I really needed to choose because it would always end up to my disadvantage.

Sh*t happens

Iedereen maakt fouten. Maar omdat we in een tijdperk leven waarin alles #perfect moet zijn, is het des te moeilijker om nog met al die perfectie om te kunnen. Als je een foto, make-up of kapsel aflevert, dan verwachten klanten dat die tot op de pixel, millimeter of haarlok perfect is. Iedereen verwacht een photoshop-perfect leven, waarin minder goed werk of fouten compleet uit den boze zijn. Post je een foto met een ietwat ‘scheve’ eyeliner, dan kraken anderen je af tot the worst make-up artist in history. Althans, als je alle commentaren op sociale media moet geloven.


I almost forgot how much I loved these springseries I created in 2015. Really can't believe it's already been 4years since I've made these. It feels almost unreal, how much everything changed over these past years...
