I was born in 1969 in s-Hertogenbosch as sister of 2 older brothers. My father was fond of boating/sailing. Various boats are also passed in my life; the family was every weekend, every holiday manouverd to Friesland to sail the Frisian Lakes. 

This past has ensured that there is always a tendency towards the water. It is the place where I find peace, where I can wander in mind and sometimes homesickness.

It is therefore not surprising that this theme more often pops up in my work. It's a red wave generated by the work back. It remains one of my greatest sources of inspiration.
