Being a creative child, you could always find me drawing. At the age of 11, I knew I wanted to become an illustrator. Over the years, I specialized in greeting cards, stationery, games, puzzles, fabric designs, and children's books. I wrote and illustrated three picture books with Dutch publisher Lemniscaat. My first book Help! Even verrassing! (Help! A suprise!) was even announced as Picture Book of the Year 2024 in the Netherlands. I am passionate about creating art that puts a smile on your face. My use of colors is lush and whimsical. I experiment with my materials and create new styles and textures to maintain my skill set.

What is your favorite occasion to illustrate?
I prefer the 'Everyday' themes that can be sent at any occasion just to make someone happy.

Which card do you still keep on your desk?
Not on my desk, but I have many cards from everything and everyone all around me on my walls. They vary in styles and I love them all.

What is the most unique card you ever created?
I got to create some pop-up cards in the past that become 3D when you open them. One most recently was created for Design House Greetings and showed a snowy landscape. When opened, the card offered a slit for a gift card.
