This is me RIGHT AFTER I DEFENDED MY PHD IN QUARANTINE

Hello, I’m Thy

(which phonetically sounds like tea)

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in tropical infection immunology at the Institute ofTropical Medicine in Antwerp, BE. Despite having an interest in the arts, I was nudged towards medical sciences as a kid to avoid the potential starving artist lifestyle (thanks mom lol).

In my free time, I am a self-taught digital artist with a deliberate messy brushing style. As any other millennial, I am worried about the future of our planet and therefore want to positively contribute to the environment and to charities with my artsy-fartsy skills.

The gift that keeps on giving, party in the front-

Origin Story

Cuddle corporate is my passion project, my creative baby. This lil’ bun has been in the oven for a while. Thanks to the 2020 corona quarantine and the call for the KU Leuven KICK challenge (a yearly contest for entrepreneurs), I decided it was time to get this project started. I applied with ‘the gift that keeps on giving’, a seed paper based-card with a money envelope in the back and a charity donation aspect as a sustainable alternative for our current, often unecological gifting culture. Even though we did not win, my lil’ bun still got into the finals, making me realize its potential. So here we are, keeping this bun rollin’ and exploring other sustainable alternatives!
