I am a mother of a two year old son, an artist and a coach based in the Netherlands. As an artist I work with watercolor, pencil and digital media to create illustrations and animations. I have directed and filmed documentaries and movies and work with that experience as an art director. My work includes nature, human connection, introspection, peace and a touch of magic. They are reminders to reflect and be in awe of this life experience.

I am always looking to learn and embody more of what it means to live an meaningful and authentic life. I have a university background in Art History but discovered that I wanted to create art myself. Taking that path took courage and self exploration which led me to study more about positive psychology when I lived in Chicago for two years. I love sharing about my discoveries and guiding you to find your purpose and balance as a coach.
