The young aspiring model Elise booked a portraitshoot on location. Alisa Acx, my go-to make-up artist was booked as well! She gave her a beautiful, neutral make up look and then we decided which outfits Elise would wear. There is a bohemian vibe as well as a more fairytale-kinda vibe.

In january this year, I began teaching at the Hoofdstedelijk Instituut Anneessens-Funck OKAN in Brussels. OKAN (stands for 'Onthaalklas voor Anderstalige Nieuwkomers') offers foreign students (mostly refugees) a one- or two-year, focused study of the Dutch language through an intense training of the 4 key language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. This makes it possible for the students to smooth the transition into secondary education or adult education (when the students are 17 of older).
They asked me if I would like to make an illustration for the schooldiary of 2020-2021. I'm still a beginner at illustrating so every chance to learn and develop myself is very welcome, so I was very happy for this opportunity! I made 2 illustrations where I did my best to portray different cultures.
On the 26th and 28th of June I had fashionshoots with many kidsmodels around the docks in Ghent. It was very warm, windy but fun and I met a lot of new models who I haven't worked with before. Here you can see some backstage pictures and a few results!
On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
