Born in Groningen in 1993, I now live in Warffum, a small and quiet village in the north of the Netherlands. When the weather doesn't allow me to paint outdoors, I work in my spacious studio in the city centre of Groningen.
Though many different subjects make me want to grab my brushes and oils, nature is my biggest source of inspiration and trying to capture its changing beauty is what I like to do the most. Since I've lived in Sardinia as a child, I have a special preference for its rough landscape and I try to go there a month a year to immerse myself in its variety of colours.
To keep improving my artistic skills beyond the plein-air painting, I've started a challenging new project that combines both working from imagination and observation. Inspired by my childhood fantasies and pushed by my husband, I'm writing my first children's book, which is the basis for a special series of very big paintings.
