Originally from the Netherlands she was raised internationally with her family living in Portugal, England and Switzerland. She eventually moved to Amsterdam with its open cultural environment. Driven by her interest in people, their behaviour and energy she explored many forms of artistic expression while pursuing a career as a communication trainer, coach and role-play actress.
Travelling frequently to Switzerland she was influenced by its scenery, climate and culture. She developed her passion for sculpting and decided to dedicate herself entirely to her artistic career.
