Portrait by Sanja Marusic, 2015

I come from a small village in the Netherlands which name translates roughly to ‘Dug by Buccaneers’. 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 part of the art collective Cara Natura and I’m a lady of the light with Linda Willemszoon. Together we are Ladies of the Light and we create liquid light shows with Wonderland Lichtshow.
