When I grew up I wanted to be a fasion designer, a writer, an illustrator for childrens book and a painter. I still want that :-)






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.
