Simone Hooymans makes experimental animations based on a hand drawn world which she combines with digital animation techniques. She creates elusive yet disturbing landscapes. 

The works of Hooymans manifiest the effect of human relationship with nature in various ways. The source of her inspiration includes landscapes, climate change and our constant struggle to understand the world.

Hooymans also creates synergies between innovative music and art with her animations and video installations. She has collaborated with several Norwegian musicians and has participated in a series of international group exhibitions and film festivals. Her animations and drawings are in collections in the Netherlands, the UK and Norway.

Music and the visuals complement each other in a memorable fashion. It is meticulous, meditative and elusive work.
