Using my own lifestyle as a source of inspiration, at some point I found myself making huge mandalas out of (super)foods and/or other natural materials. In these mandalas, my fascination for pure ingredients fuses with my passion for sacred geometry.

I can work for days on 1 design, intuitively laying out all the ingredients and letting it all expand naturally untill I feel it is done, or run out of space. I use only organic (super)foods or other natural materials and photograph the result afterwards.

Just like the famous Tibetan sand-mandala’s I do not ‘preserve’ the end result, nor is this my intention while making them. I work in silence or while listening to relaxing music and simply enjoy the meditative state that comes with doing so. After taking the pictures, all ingredients end up in enormous salads, to be eaten with friends, or back into nature.

My current work as a designer/blogger is directly aiming at the field of sustainable, conscious and organic living. If you feel you can use my designs for any specific project to share the beauty of pure organic foods with a broader audience, I would love to hear from you :)
