There's not been a day my mind has not been creatively involved in one of my many projects, be it writing, painting, exploring, and solving never-ending artistic challenges. A poet and a painter, with my DarkEnsemble collaborations I produce experimental albums to meaningfully merge sound text and image.
I design, implement and teach creative art education. Since 2003 I lecture and mentor students at the pop dep. of the conservatorium, University of the Arts in Amsterdam. Each academic year I set out to create an all inclusive, safe space for interactive learning using the latest innovative models. From experience through experiment to excellence.
Being a feminist and ecological activist I organize and promote She-Music Int. a supportive platform for women in the music industry and am an energetic member of the Music Declares Emergency movement.
