I am a Dutch artist, currently living in Assen in the Netherlands. My studio is upstairs in the two-floor appartment where I live with my husband and cat Moomin.
When I create I feel so connected! To make something that hasn't been on this planet before is just magic to me and that's probably why I've been creating for as long as I can remember. Painting feels like a second language for me and I love experimenting with the different materials. I'm currently most in love with gouache and oilpaints, but will always integrate the fluent translucency of a watercolor painting in my work. At heart, I feel like I'm an impressionist painter, with sometimes abstract and sometimes realism splurges. Besides paints I enjoy adding embroidered details to a painting.
When I'm not painting I love to read, to listen or make music and to go out on adventures. We run a very open household and both value community deeply, so you can often find us sharing a coffee or meals with friends and family.
My husband and I are currently trying to convert a Citroen Jumper van into a mobile home! (@littlemywanders on IG) We hope to set out on a big adventure somewhere at the end of 2020 - and take our home/studio along the ride!
