Being raised on a Dutch island, nature - and especially the sea - has been my greatest teacher. Walking beside her, I feel both the power of her greatness and my own vulnerability. My one and all favorite line is the always-changing thin line that the sea leaves behind on the sand with her waves. The paradox of feeling both powerful and vulnerable is the guideline in my work. After high school on Texel I moved to Amsterdam, where I briefly studied philosophy followed by art teaching and creative writing. In Sweden I have found an animistic training (Scandinavian center for shamanic studies) that is still deepening my work and life with several courses I follow now and then. Go to some of my art and poetry.
