But that would just convey the visible part of her personal iceberg, as you can see it now. Before showing her present portrait, many little drops of life have filled in a vase that is not yet totally full. She was born in The Netherlands and lived a big part of her adult life in Amsterdam. Studied Human Resource Management and Communication and worked the last 6 years of her other professional career as a Communication Adviser for a Pharmaceutical Company. Everything changed in 2007 when she decided to move to Auvergne, in France to focus on her passion, photography. Photography is now more than just a passion for her; it’s a way of living and the best way to express herself more creatively. Working with an eye for detail to give birth to intimate compositions so that people can also play a part when they look at it. She published her first book, Variation in Trees | Les Variations de L’Arbres in December 2017. Over the years she had carried out private commissions, photo assignments. You can also find her work in many magazines, books and other publications or in stock agencies. Parallel to this she works together with Nordic Vision Photo-tours a Dutch based photo- travel company.
