D:: Dutch is ...Being so Lucky to live in a free and save country, being able to say what you want, and do what you want.

E:: entrance, when entering my home you will notice I collect a lot , am very tidy and all things exposed mean a lot to me.

S:: style, means just being yourself and being proud of that.


I::   interesting places in my city are; I live in a very very small village with actually only some farmers and some animals. The beauty of the nature in my living environment is stunning, and changes with every season. There is nothing like it!

G:: gardening is something I love, and would like to do much more, but I cannot find enough time.


N:: new, in my home is that I just moved into the most beautiful little garden house that I can call my studio now! The new thing is that now I have space to show all my collectables, instead of putting them all away in closets.  This give the place a very personal look.


H:: hobby, I always make time for...work, since this is what I love doing the most!

O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is a  pair of jogging pants sneakers and a big cardigan


M:: make, I start creating when...I feel like it, and when I need new material.

E:: enjoy, I can't live without... my children. I know it is a bit a boring answere, but it’s the truth. On top of that they are proud of me       and the work I make, and wear it with enthusiasm.
