I love every aspect of it, yet I try to specialize in the art of animation.
I like to lean on my skills and knowledge of the art of drawing, painting, photography, dance, writing, theater and music to create my animations and movies. I'm a dreamer who gets inspiration anywhere. I am fascinated by the beauty of simplicity, old materials, handmade looks and storytelling;
culture, myths, religions, and fairy tales;
life, animals, people and nature;
imagination without limits, riddles, wonders and surrealistic scenes.
While teachers keep telling me to keep my projects small and compact, I live by the philosophy 'The Sky Is The Limit'.
To me the most challenging parts of my profession are:
1) making choices;
There are so many options and solutions!
2) framing my creative process;
An artist has got ongoing creative processes, get's inspiration everywhere, ideas come and go whenever they do.
3) time management;
The fact that my drive and eager to learn make me spend a lot of time inside, behind my computer or desk, while at the same time I love to be outside.
Now to solve that problem, I could become a gardener, but my head would probably explode of all the dreams and ideas that I can't turn into creations (or my garden will look kinda strange!) and I'll miss the joy of working on my creative projects.
So I try to keep my balance, make sure I spend some time in nature and with my beloved ones and my very best friend Brum Brum Elvis. In the meanwhile just embrace the fact that I'm an artist.
