Welcome to my About page. Here you can read a bit about me and my art.
Nature is my great inspiration, not only its beauty but also its fragility and finality.
To find inspiration I love to stroll through the Amsterdam Forest which is quite close to where I live. During my walks I take lots of pictures and if I can I take some of my found treasures home.
As a little girl, next to nature, I also adored my childhood picture books and decided at an early age I wanted to pass on the joy I experienced through these beautifully illustrated books to other people through my own art.
Right now my art is about sharing the connection I feel with nature, its beauty and the overwhelming force that nature, or life, truely is.

In 1999 I graduated at the Amsterdam School of Arts, Academy of Fine Arts in Education, now called Breitner Academy.
In 2001 I joined graphical studio Grafisch Collectief Thoets. The studio was founded in 1980 and is specialized in techniques like etching, lithography and silkscreen. I left the studio when they had to move in December 2020. Now I create all my art from my home studio.
From 2004 to 2018 I exhibited my art at Art Amsterdam Spui.
The same year I left this open air artmarket I joined Kunstenaarsvereniging Sint Lucas. This is an art association consisting of about 50 members exhibiting their art on multiple occasions a year. Kunstenaarsvereniging Sint Lucas was founded in 1880 and had many famous members like Jan Toorop and Piet Mondriaan.
