Ever since I can remember writing and drawing was part of my life. Even during my studies at the university (Psychology). When I became a mother, hardly a day went by without us painting or drawing at the kitchen table. It was than, that the idea to create a magazine for children was born.
My goal was to create something in which children can be creative, where they can express who they are, rather than impose them how they should be, or what they should like. I made 7 editions, every season a new one, every word and every drawing by my hand. Printed here in Amsterdam.
I put the magazine on a hold, and moved on with illustrating, painting, drawing. Still, being a mother, my children and their world are my biggest source of inspiration and hopefully my work reflects that.
