In 2019 I was generously awarded the Prix de Norvège for my graduations series. Members of the jury were mr. Henk Helmantel, mr. Rein Pol and mr. Arie van Rijn. Also awarded was my classmate Marein Konijn and together we were invited to visit Norway by mr. Egbert Pijfers to get inspired by this unbelievable amazing country.
This study trip has inspired me to focus even more on all different kinds of textures of rocks.
