While struggling t'he past 4-5 years, I have lost 8 people that were very close to me. Including my father... . While dealing with tinnitus (not from any loud noise nor hearing damage), it is still a mystery how I got this. I would like to be an example, even though it can ruin lives, it does not have to be like that!

It limits my life value, but then again. I try my hardest to make to best of it. I recently, After a successfull Erasmus programme in Plymouth UKGraduated With Honor at Royal Academy of Fine Arts Ghent, Belgium, Master Fine Arts – Painting. 
Along with the painting aspect Music (Goa-trance) plays a huge role in my daily well being. Big Ups to Suntrip Records (old school Belgian Goa label) to add so much positive experiences in these circumstances. I do not deny any treatment, it just seems I'm one of the "unlucky" ones who just has to deal with it.

Which is no problem. But I do not have not have anyone backing me up financially, not the rest of family (the few that are still alive), do not back me up in my creative adventure.

My current "dream" is to teach on a part-time level (digital art or traditional) while producing own work.

I just need something to get me started so I do not have to adjust any of these goals. It may be selling original work or digital prints. Everything can be discussed. The first thing on my mind is paying the rent and being able to buy the needed tools to create new work.

The past should be a place or reference  not a place of residence...

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge would be to distance myself from those who do not have the slightest believe in me, only when they see "results". Overcome the fear I'll become deaf on my left side and just deal with the sudden tinnitus during these harsh times. I even want to give back. Create work people can relate to, on an universal level without to much of an explanation needed to feel, experience the works.
