Multidisciplinary Designer and Creative Artist
I grew up in the flemish part of Belgium and started designing at the age of 16. I was a apprentice assistant at my father company, who is a blacksmith and metal construction worker. In 2009 I graduated in Electro-mechanics at the Provincial Technical Institute, Eeklo, Belgium. During my time in Eeklo, I also went to the academie of fine Arts, Waarschoot, Belgium. There, I learned the skills of lino carving, etching, sculpture, ceramics, pottery, drawing and painting.
The combination of artistic and technical insight made me study Interior Design at LUCA School of Arts, Ghent, Belgium (2009). At the beginning of my third and final year (2012) I was offered a modelling job in Barcelona and soon after one in New York. I put my studies on hold and traveled to London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Amsterdam, New York and Sydney. Working for brands as Tommy Hilfiger, Ermenegildo Zegna, John Varvatos, Rick owens etc.
After 3 years of modelling I went back to finish my Bachelor in Interior Design. With the knowledge I gained during my modelling days I got a Internship at Aux Armes Etc in New York. At ‘Aux Armes Etc’ I learned the basics of fashion week presentations and runway design during the NYFW Fall/Winter 2015. In June 2015 I graduated Interior Designs at LUCA School of Arts, with a laureate on my bachelor assignment. In Oktober 2015 I had the privilege to start an internship at Ito Masaru Design Project / SEI in Tokyo, Japan.
From April 2016 I work as an Interior Designer at Ito Masaru design Projects.
