Sustainable

Sustainability means taking good care of our fellow human beings, animals and the environment. Therefore, I select materials I work with with extra care. I will always choose eco-friendly, recycled and sustainable alternatives where possible. I use acid-free, sustainable paper with an FSC-label, that has been produced with hydropower. The paint I use is of the highest quality and highly pigmented, which creates high brilliance and lightfastness with minimal use of material. In addition, as a former scientist, I select paints and pigments with utmost care, by thoroughly researching compounds and ingredients.  For canvases, I use wooden frames with an FSC-label and organically grown natural fibers. As a finish, I minimise the use of harmful varnishes by choosing eco-friendly water-based varnishes. And of course, it is only natural that I use 100% wind energy in my studio.

Upcycling

As a passionate recycler and thrift store shopper, naturally, I use as many recycled materials as possible. I often visit local thrift stores in search for treasures that I can use in my art practice, such as used passe-partouts, frames and canvases. When restoring frames that need a touch of paint, I use the old-fashioned brush. Besides functioning as an art form in itself, this way I avoid using spray paint, with all its harmful aerosols. These are some ways I try to be frugal with the earth’s natural resources, while doing my part to fight our worldwide pollution problems.

Last but not least

For every artwork that is sold, I plant a TREE: A tree for a ‘Hightree’! (my nickname!) This way we contribute to a positive change in our world together! Now that is what I call synergy!
