Portrait by Sanja Marusic, 2015

I come from a small former Viking village in the Netherlands, where there is always headwind. I grew up there and partially in the ‘Magies Sentrum’, also known as Amsterdam.

I have studied Art History at the University of Amsterdam and I got a degree in dressmaking. I followed courses in moulage techniques, silversmithing and silk painting. I have done a dance training at the Amsterdam University of High Arts and followed courses for example by Helena Pikon from Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. I’m still learning to talk to animals.
