About

Making the world a nicer place, with softness, beauty and fantasy through paintings and photographs.

As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by costumes, beautiful dresses, historical dresses and traditional dress. These over the top dresses and imagery inspire me and I like to use them in my work. But in real life I actually prefer clean lines, not "Baroque" or "Rococo" so much. And that is where the kimono found it's way in to my heart.

For me the kimono has it all, clean lines and gorgeous patterns and appearance.
The kimono is my biggest love and since the mid 1990's I collect and study kimono. The kimono appears in my work quite often as they enhance my dreams and help bring my message across.
I love Japan and it's culture and try to visit as often as I can. To get inspiration, see new wonderful things and experience a life completely different from Europe.

In my works I try to make dreams "real".
I love make-believe. As I believe everybody has a (child's) dream, like... "I want to be a princess", or "I want to be a firefighter" "I want to be a movie star". Of course these fantasies indicate: "I want to be special". The thing I like most is to make these dreams, these feelings of wanting to be special visible through paintings and photographs.

Besides creating, teaching and styling I really want to share my work and love for beauty and the kimono with the world, that's how this Etsy shop saw the light.
