Who am I?
I have been born in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and after several moves I live in Beverwijk. Until 1998 I was active as an executive secretary in employment; now I am retired.
Late 80's I started to study photography seriously. A latent interest blossomed; photography has become my passion.
I am self taught. Shape and colour are the sources of my inspiration, with an eye for detail. Knowing the technical aspects of photography, I can photograph from the heart.
With my photos I want to tell the story of the world around me, the beauty of the street, of nature, of everything that is, of all I love and want to share with you.
