As a child she discovers the magical world of photography by looking through the
viewfinder of the box camera. From that moment on, a quest for this particular art
form is born. She starts experimenting, but later on in her career she is also inspired
by other photographers and artists, who give her useful advise and suggestions.
During her high school years, she was also touched by the love of music which resulted
in her attending the Conservatory of Music after graduation. The flute became her
instrument. During her studies at the Conservatory of Music her photography is put
on hold but for a number of years it has been a prominent part of life.
Lives and works in Haarlem and also in Zaandam at Fluxus Art Centre.
