I have been a visual artist since 1982. Painting and drawing were the things I loved to do. I taught classes for many years and had lots of exhibitions of my paintings and installations in The Netherlands and abroad.
Lately I started working with textiles. My fascination for patterns and geometry found a new outlet in my designs for knitting. I alternately knit by hand and machine or combine the two. This gives me a lot of versatility and the possibility to visualize my designs with a little more speed.
Photography is my other passion. Making photos enables me to document things for later use and is a great source of inspiration when I am starting new projects. Under PHOTOGAPHY you will find a small impression of my photos. If you would like to see some more, please visit the Blurb website where you will find my books. I have made four books about 'the elements' WATER, FIRE, EARTH, AIR and one about the fifth element WOOD [according to the Chinese tradition].
