HOW did I become an Illustrator?
As a 3-year old child I started to draw which resulted in my first printed artwork: the birth-annoucement card for my brother Roderick. Three of my favorite materials to work with haven’t changed over the years: pencils, ink & scissors. And as a true Dutch girl I love Delft Blue which has been a major inspiration in my work.
After a 15-year career in marketing & communication, I felt the urge to spend more time with my family and decided to pursue my long-awaited artistic dream of becoming an Illustrator so I decided to start my own business from home.
Since I am versatile in many traditional mediums my illustrations range from tiny detailed black & white drawings to larger loose colorful ones made with ecoline, gouache or acrylic paint. During the summer of 2016 I found a new passion: kirigami (Japanese paper-cutting, also called ‘monkiri’).
I tend to incorporate elements of nature, vintage, everyday objects and typography in my work. Plus a bit of humor from time to time. I’m constantly seeking new sources of inspiration, from magazine articles to animals and patterns. 
When I am not in my studio, I enjoy being Patrick’s wife and mom to my daughter Alieke (1998) & our son Mats (2010).
