post // Spending Christmas 2021 in Breda?
Since 2000 Stichting Kerststal Princenhage has built a life sized Nativity Scene every Christmas in the centre of Princenhage – a village in the city of Breda.

I have made it my goal to create a portrait drawing every day. Therefore, I have chosen a small, early 20th century portrait of my great-grandmother.
post // Hiking in the hamlets The Rith and Lies near Breda
Thanks to the dark weather the views were amazing. The overwhelming skies reminded me of paintings of 17th century Dutch landscape painter Jacob van Ruisdael.

post // A lovely surprise: a bouquet of flowers
Today this pretty display of nature’s abundance of colour was delivered with a card saying that I deserved flowers. It was sent by Curio.

When I attended the Academy of Arts, my art teacher wasn’t too pleased with my drawings. He told me to improve my skills by making a drawing every day.
post // WordCamp Nijmegen 2019

post // WordCamp Rotterdam 2019
In 2018 I volunteered at a WordCamp for the first time. Because it was so much fun, I was thrilled for the opportunity to volunteer again at WordCamp Rotterdam.
post // WordCamp Utrecht 2018
WordCamp Utrecht took place on the weekend of October 26 till 28, 2018 at Seats2meet in the Hoog Catharijne shopping center. I attended as a volunteer.
