After a busy life as flower arranger at big events like exhibitions and flower parades, and as teacher flower arrangement with giving demonstrations and workshops in the Netherlands and abroad, I have, since 2013, more time for hobby drawing.
Already as a child I showed much interest in nature and spent a lot of time outdoors. Education in horticulture was the right choice for me. As a flower arranger, I have worked intensively with colour, shape, line, texture and 3D design. I enjoy immensely transferring these elements to paper with much detail.
