Artist Statement

Born in 1951 in Tilburg, she has lived and worked in The Hague, in The Netherlands, since 1983. She studied illustrative art at the "Koninklijke Academie voor Kunst en Vormgeving" in 's-Hertogenbosch.

From de "Werkschuit" in Amsterdam she went to the "Vrije Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten" in The Hague, where she specialised in the art of screenprinting.
Among other cities her screenprints have been exhibited in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Utrecht and The Hague. Levi's Benelux b.v. gave her an assignment to make a series of screenprints with "Jeans Art" as subject.
Screenprints have been bought by both enterprises and individuals.

Since 1995 she specialises in painting with acrylic on cotton.
Her paintings find their origin in the artist being a woman and the images of an imprisoned existence; the housewife (mother) at home (with her kids),the working woman planning and making her career. It is not for nothing that one of her paintings is named "Jail".
She has been acknowledged as a professional visual artist, by HCBK Stroom, since July 1st 1997.

Besides her own work she also accepts assignments
