My turn!

If you ended here, it’s probably because Seth Apter sent you!
Some of you might know me already.
Most of you are certainly wondering why a tiny person like me, living in a tiny country like Belgium, having so little experience in art, was invited to be part of such a great book, alongside such amazing artists.
I don’t know. I am honored.

Let me introduce myself.

I’m 34 years old. I live in Belgium. I speak French.
I am a sixth-year fellow in gastroenterology. I’m trying to master the endoscopic skills required to diagnose and treat esophageal, stomach, duodenal and colonic diseases.
In my spare time, I paint.
Being so organized and irreproachable at the hospital gives me permission to get messy, to play and cross boundaries at my art desk.

My medium of choice is acrylic paint. I combine collage, acrylics and drawing media (crayons and markers).
Usually, I work in a journal. Sometimes on a canvas.
If you browse my work, you’ll notice my two favorite fields of work : my industrial scenes and my studies of lines, shapes and textures.
I’m not used to write long posts.
I prefer to show you what I’ve been up to.
There are phases where I paint and post everyday and phases where laundry, kids and work get in the way...
If you want to see the work of the other 29 "spotlight" artists, go buy the book :)
