Eva Elaine, born on 09-07-1988, living and working in Groningen, the Netherlands

                                                                       I use my work as a battering ram, and a form of psychic self-defense against my own thoughts and tendencies.                                                                                                                                                   I conceive, document and go on. Through this process I explore and explain my own obsessions.
