It all started with my creative recovery journey through South East Asia. The intention was to travel only for 2 months and now I've been on the road since 2011 keeping a travel diary which has been living a life of it's own from making illustrations for postcards, pillows, books, bags, designing logos, murals, holding exhibitions, charity work wherever I go and having my own jewelry line.
In my travel diary I keep a daily meditative private practice of writing and drawing which has been helping me to heal as an artist and grow as a person. I work through the emotions and blockages by opening myself up, letting go, silencing my inner critic and finally healing myself through colors and repetitive lines.
Showing up every day on the page, my illustrations show a very intimate landscape of my innerworld. My struggles, dreams and ambitions, joy , aloneness, rediscovering my passion for life and understanding myself. My work explores my love for color, dance, the secret life of animals, femininity and the ultimate force that guides us
I was born on the small Island of Curacao and have a degree in Accountancy and Business Administration in Banking Finance and Insurance. At the age of 25 I finally decided to follow my heart and study Fashion & Design at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute where I majored in textiles and trend forecasting. I worked for Coulisse where I developed collections for interiors and conducted in-depth design research for seasonal trend publications. Furthermore I had work expercience at Alexander Mc Queen in London, DIS in Shanghai and Tony Cohen in Amsterdam.
