As a child I was always drawing on every possible surface. And if I wasn't drawing, I was sewing my own clothes or find other ways to express myself. I did a study for art-teacher, and after finishing my study, life took me in different directions for different reasons. I lived in Turkey for a few years which gave me a lot of inspiration (and still does). I did my own art-workshops in the past. Creativity is always like a guideline in all my jobs I had in the past; thinking in options and in possibilities and other ways to reach your goal, it helped me a lot in my life to be where I am now. If I can touch just one soul in the world with my art, I am happy. I am enjoying the process of creating more than the result in the end. And you can do it anywhere and anyhow you want. That makes a great combination with my other passion: travelling. I love working with mixed media, (combination of different materials or using textiles or photo's in paintings): art you can feel and touch. But painitings with acrylicpaint are what I do the most. Inspiration is all around me.
