Nice to meet you! I'm Maud, charcoal and graphite artist and passionate about drawing people. My drawings often zoom in on young adults and their relationship to the rapidly changing outside world.

Transformer, charcoal portrait

Transformer (burnished charcoal, private collection)

Transformer; No longer a child, not yet an adult. Geared up and ready to deal with the challenges of the outside world.

I'm very honoured that his drawing is nominated for De Nederlandse Portretprijs 2023. Together with 49 other finalists, it will be exhibited in Slot Zeist from June 9 to September 3, 2023. 

For Transformer and Charcoal Angels below I used a sanding technique to burnish the charcoal in heavy paper instead of just drawing on the surface. The process is time consuming and labor intensive but it opens new possibilities for detailing and makes the drawing more intense and durable.

Children absorbed in carefree play together, resulting in something amazing. 

This large charcoal drawing is based on a children’s art project in which art was combined with music. Movements that started of hesitant, eventually synchronized and melted together in amazing drawings.
