Hello, my name is Annemiek van Duin and thank you for taking the time to visit me in my digital home.


Feel welcome to browse through my stories told in portraits and collages. Or make a cup of coffee and visite my blog 'Little Life Adventures'.


With my artwork I want to give you 'a moment'.

A moment were you are surprised and start smiling. And my hope is  that you get to see the extraordinary little stories in daily life and the people around you.

That's my wish.


My hometown, born in 1976 near the sea. The sounds of the waves feel like home to me.

Now I live in Alphen aan den Rijn and every seagull here makes me long for the sea.

One day I'll find my way back to the sea.

The Owl

I've named my business 'The Owl said' for two reasons.

It sounds like the beginning of a fairy tale and I'm in love with those stories. And my father collected owls. He passed away and this is one of the ways I keep a connection with him.
