OPEN Atelier & end of season party – 16th, 17th and 18th of June

At the weekend of the 16th, 17th and 18th of June I like to welcome you to my OPEN Atelier with a special end of season party for all students, former and new ones, friends and families on Saturday the 17th from 15.00 – 19.00h!

Together with Yolanda de Niet another artist & friend that lives in the same building, we are opening our ateliers for the whole weekend on Friday from 19.00 and Saturday & Sunday in the time from 15h – 19h. It will be a lovely occasion to catch up about art & creativity, meet with old friends and previous participants of classes again and to show my younger course participants the other work I do. In the past few years we have had lots of fun to recreate art works with the project, if you are up for it the camera is always ready.

For the occasion I am offering a 30% discount on selected art works on show and as usual there are also different payment plans available on demand.

In order to plan the drinks and snacks quantities can I kindly ask you to drop me a quick mail to let me know if and with how many people you are able to make it. I am really looking forward to seeing you and hope many of you can make it!

Best regards,

What a fabulous summer – Newsletter August

business2What a fabulous summer we have had so far and for some of us we are only half way through the summer holidays. Yeah!! The summer kids art classes were great fun and we could work lots outside. We have had a few sessions of “Art in the Park” where we could create fun art works in the evening sun and even during my latest “Creative sparks 4 Businesses” (see above) we could work partly outside. Let us hope there are some more beautiful days to come! But even if the cooler days are ahead of us I have put together a fun, bright programme of nice classes for all ages. And I am currently researching locations for a relaxing & creative weekend workshop in November. So please stay tuned!


The time to work on my own artistic projects is always quite limited and I feel the same pressure that most of you deal with. When we finally make the time to create something, it first takes a while to get back into the flow of the painting or creation process in general. But if we stick to it, it is so worth the effort, we are overall happier, have spent more mindful time with ourselves and in most cases, we have created new beautiful objects or paintings.
If you want to use the rentrée to bring more creativity into your life, than join us in the new “Boost your creativity” classesI am offering on Thursday evening and Friday mornings starting on the 17th September.The spaces are filling up fast, so please get into touch soon in order to avoid disappointment.

kids classes dIf you want to provide your children with a creative time-out every Tuesday afternoon, over a 12 week period, there are still spaces for all ages in the kids art classes that I organise in co-operation with a parent initiative from Weimershof.
The aim of the classes is to provide the children with inspiration and materials to express themselves in all different kind of media.

There are always new co-operations and partnerships coming up. On the 20th September I will organise for the Bicycle Art & Film Festival another Plasticine animation workshop at Carré Rotondes and some further fun projects still to be discussed. For the registration and further information please check their web site in the coming weeks.

cutoutglassFor those of you who have already experienced the, “Boost your creativity”, classes once or twice 😉 – you will be happy to know that there will be new“Playful creative discovery” classes starting on the 12th November. I will update my website regarding these classes on our return from the holidays in September.

In September I also celebrate the end of my second year as independent artist and arts educator. Time to say a big thank you to all of you that have purchased some of my art works, that have come to my classes again and again and that have entrusted me to guide the creative souls of your children in their artistic development. It has been a fantastic experience! And I raise my glass to more fun to come!
Wishing you and your families a fabulous end of the summer and that we meet again soon!

Merry Christmas & happy New Year

Today is my last class for the season and I would like to use the opportunity to thank you for the interest and participation in my art & classes, may it be by yourself or your children! I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope the feeling was mutual! I now look forward to a few weeks in which I will recharge the batteries, by painting myself and reading lots of new interesting books on creativity and art  – and hope we will meet soon again in 2014!

Wishing you and your families a very merry Christmas and all the best for a happy New Year!
