Since I can remember, I've always felt a lot of pleasure

                         when I create things that express my dreams and fascinations. 

                        That feeling followed me until today. The endless moments of

                        drawing at my parental home, what I often did together with

                         my sister, formed the fundament of my ambition to live my

                         life as an artist. I wanted to be an illustrator, a film director,      

                         an animator, a prop creator, but now I realize there's no

                        need to put myself into a frame to categorize myself. Or

                       maybe is an "allround artist" also a category? Anyway, art

                      always came across my path. 

                   In March 2019, the initials 'lvb' were no longer only a

                signature that I added to a finished artwork. They formed

             the name of my own art practice. lvb art means passion,

         professionality, quality above quantity, authenticity, plea-

      sure, variety, experiment. But even more importantly:

   catching the soul of animals into impressive, handmade

 artworks that come alive in a unique way.

My art practice mainly highlights the relation-

ship between humans and animals

and the tension between nature and

artificiality. My autonomous work is

often characterized by its surreal,

 imaginative accents and playful

    aspects, which invites to dis-

       cuss everyday subjects

      and personal questions.


                 most exciting

            thing in my life is to

         believe in adventures that

      can change my point of view, 

    even if I am a bit afraid of them.

 To give the inner child in me room to observe the world more purely and also to bring magic in common things.

We can be puppets of our own life,  but life can also be a puppet for us. 

It's just how you decide to look upon    the things that surround you.
