These wondrous, colorful creations are made using ferrofluid and watercolor inks, using the magnetic properties to create hyper-vibrant channels, grouped dot patterns and abstract forms.

“I usually get my inspiration from magazines or blogs on science and technology but also from other artists from different fields like photography, painting or sculpting.
Every now and then I come across a technology or a material, that I find interesting to experiment with and from there on, a project sometimes develops.
So for example with the Millefiori series I first tried out creating different shapes of the ferrofluid itself and then started to add all different kinds of other liquids to it and see what happens.”
