A Dutch Kiwi, based in beautiful Mangawhai, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Very blessed to be able to work from my wonderful studio overlooking the Pacific (albeit from afar) on one side and the Brynderwyn Range on the other. Sunrise and sunset.

My family and I live here on a lifestyle block together with a bunch of chickens, five alpacas, two cats and one adorable little Malteser-Shitzu called Charlie.

Surface designer, documentary photographer, bookmaker, printmaker and botanical printer. Keeps me of the streets!

Attended the Willem de Kooning Academy for Art in Rotterdam and am a
 graduate of the “Academy for Photography Amsterdam” in the Netherlands. Worked in documentary- and press photography for many years.

Member and committee member of Mangawhai Artists Inc and  also their gallery coordinator.
