I was born and raised in Zeeland, a province in the south-west of the Netherlands and I grew up in a little village right next to the dunes and the North Sea. Although I now live in another province, I visit Zeeland as often as I can. I still miss the wind and the waves…
I live together with my beloved in Eindhoven. My love and I run a small company together in graphical communication. I have a son – born in 1992 – who studies Artificial Intelligence on the Radboud University in Nijmegen.

I have varied experiences in crafting and this allows me to combine products and techniques from different fields with ease.
Over the last years, my art changed from scrapbooking to art journaling and mixed media. I’m very concentrated and thoughtful when it comes to creating. I like to put away my work from time to time to look at it later with a fresh mind. I guess my art work needs a little time to “grow”. I like to use words and texts in my art – poems as well as ‘diary like’ texts and my art work often contains details or words that have a deeper meaning.
It was only logical to combine my love for art and passion for texts/writing not only in my personal art, but also do something with it professionally… so since 2012 I am the proud founder and editor in chief of the printed magazine FEATURING (a magazine for art journaling, mixed media and more…)
