Hi there,

I'm an abstract expressionist artist and I teach art, spirit art and mediumship.

I'm here to inspire you with my soulful art and workshops.


My parents bought their first artwork before they even had a couch and I grew up with abstract art on the wall. My grandfather bought an art piece when he was imprisoned in a Japanese war camp, in exchange for potatoes. He became dangerously thin so I don't know if this was the best swap for him. He survived and the beautiful painting is still in the family. 


When I started, at 21, at the Rotterdam Art Academy, art held the promise of finding my true inspiration within. It is like I already knew I wouldn't find it in the visible world. I felt things I couldn’t place so while painting I dove into my inner reality and express what I found. Still I needed to learn more about the things I felt.

Around my 30th I therefor went on a spiritual quest, to find freedom and growth. Emotional bodywork training and living and working in a spiritual community were the ingredients. I found healing and when tears welled up from being touched by the spirit world I learned I have a natural gift of sensitivity and spiritual connection. 

I developed as a medium and spirit artist by training my intuition extensively. I learned to draw portraits of deceased (without photo or knowing them) for people in the public and pass on information about the deceased. I learned to step aside and be a channel. Now, in my art making this provides me with a constant stream of inspiration.

I had my own practice for 10 years: I did international soul art commissions and gave insightful sessions using art. I taught art and mediumship to creatives and intuitives so they could grow trust in their abilities and have fun, way out of their comfort zone. Despite this, in the last few years my soul longed for that liberating feeling of abstract painting. The wild woman won and I returned  to filling my days with making (and selling) paintings. On the weekends I'm happy teaching painting workshops and mediumship courses.


In my art I express the ongoing process of growth, of freeing and empowering the soul and finding out who we truly are beyond the physical.

Intuition, discovery and experimentation are crucial in my artistic process. While being fully present, I allow my gestural moves to transmit a liberating and colorful energy onto my canvas. I apply acrylic paints with a range of tools and brushes that bring variety in shape, movement and texture.

I want my art to evoke feeling, to give you an experience of your own soul. The soul is where the magic happens between you and my art, between you and eternity.
