“I was born in 1946 in Gennep Holland. I am married and have 3 children, and I am now living in the Algarve Portugal, together with my husband.
As a child I was fascinated by nature, which later on became a source of inspiration in my work. In the past I had my own textile shop, selling clothes made of hand printed textiles, woven and knitted. At the end of the 80’s I specialised in painting using watercolours, acrylics, oils and mixed media.
During my travels in foreign countries I collected sand and stones and processed them into my paintings. My work has been exhibited in several galleries and cultural centres both in Holland and Portugal.
Since living in Portugal I have applied myself to photography with a preference for nature and the influence of time on it. I like to focus on the colours, shapes, and structures in nature, mostly recorded in the small details, expressing ‘life’ in rusted and weathered materials. Spirituality and creativity are the real threads in my life. I feel an alliance with nature and try to reflect this in my work.
