To me, perspective is everything. I have always found it fascinating how a fact or event can have a completely different meaning, depending on one’s perspective. In the end, reality is relative and can be so easily influenced that it ends up not existing. I love creating my own reality using exclusively old books, magazines, glue and time.
After a successful birth in 1973; a Masters in Law in Geneva, Switzerland; a career as a business controller in Amsterdam; and after a few years dedicated to making children’s wishes come true via the Make-A-Wish Foundation, I discovered the magic world of analogue collages in 2015.
Over the last couple of years, I have been invited to Collagistas, the international collage festival. My collages have been featured in the Dutch version of Elle and in de Grote Amsterdamse Kunstkalender 2016. I had a solo exhibition in Singapore and started making illustrations and commissioned work. Since June 2017, I have been a contributor to @thecollageclub on Instagram.
I live in the Netherlands, together with my husband and 3 children.
