I paint, I draw, I wield my scissors and needles and I make objects.


Trained in my hometown Amsterdam, Holland, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, I am based in England, Oxford and Coventry since 2004.


In my work I create a habitat that has a fairytale atmosphere, populated by weird and wonderful composites of ceramics and textiles, and collages of cuttings from my life on watercolours.


I am one of three founding directors of Holyhead Studios, a non for profit organisation for the arts in Coventry.


I have extensive experience in teaching art, specialising in watercolours and life drawing, to (young) adults at institutions like Coventry University, Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Adult Education, Pilgrims Teacher Training. I hold a teaching qualification in Higher Education.

OXFORD ARTWEEKS COMING UP!



Oxfordshire Artweeks is England's oldest and biggest artist open studios event, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.


From 7th-29th May you can feast your eyes on a huge range of creative activity by hundreds of artists, makers and designers in artists' studios, pop-up galleries, glorious gardens, ancient churches, medieval tithe barns and hundreds of other amazing venues.


Oxfordshire Artweeks is a chance to talk to artists and creatives about their work, be inspired, entertained and delighted: browse, and even choose a treasure to take home with you.


My studio will be open in the first week of the 2022 festival (7th-15th May).


All venues are drop-in, free to visit and have committed to be Covid-secure.
