After a fascinating international career in design and fashion, she decided to devote herself entirely to her passion,
She’s got her own studio. She usually uses ceramics to express herself. But all kinds of obvious materials, or object
found as carbage, can be combined.
It’s not simple to reduce Ann’s works to the same denominator.
Her inspirations are too different. She’s driven by social incomprehensibility, moved by music, meeting different
people, nature, silence. Humour runs through it like a thread.
She’s always looking for the ultimate thing, sometimes farfetched, often simple. And not only in small works.
Spring is always the moment when inspiration begins and big works might be created to put in parks and gardens. She
uses prunings to create original works.
Ann not only followed ceramics in the academy of arts in Dendermonde under Frank Steyaert, but also numerous master
classes with famous foreign ceramists. Her first expo was in 2002 in Brasschaat, where she lives. Later also in Bruges, Brussels, Germany, France, Croatia etc.
