Intuition - Feelings - Thoughts
I’m a visual artist based in the Netherlands. For me as an Empath, a Highly Sensitive Person and an INFJ (introverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging)/ INFP (introversion, intuition, feeling, perception) personality type becoming an artist almost seemed inevitable.
Although at times these traits can be difficult I feel blessed owning them. It makes me see and perceive this world in a highly intense, beautiful and special manner. I feel everything. And I mean, I really feel and perceive this world on a level and dimension that most people cannot reach.
My mind is wired to make connections and to see the bigger picture. When I hear a song I exactly know which line of lyrics to pick out of it. And to which kind of feeling those words connect to.
I can visualize and sense a feeling into combinations getting together in an atmosphere that is made up out of colour, sound, texture, forms and words.
(Meanwhile) I always have the past, future and present as a collective in the back of my mind. I also always keep and feel (in the back of my mind) the poor, the rich, the pain of the world and the joy, as if I were it all. As if I am life itself, I am all of it, I feel all of it.
The world need Us, The Sensitive
At his current moment the world needs us, the sensitive ones. To state it even clearer: The existence of the world depends on being sensitive and caring for each other and the environment.
We’re in this black hole of taking and talking on the cost of other living beings and nature itself. We don’t give back, we don’t see oneness but instead only our own benefits. Without change we’re going to destroy ourselves. Now is the time to take care and to care.
