Arts & Crafts
English, German, some Spanish, learning Dutch
I am an artist and crafts & art teacher. I just resettled from New York City to Amsterdam.
In New York City I worked as babysitter and as arts & craft teacher for after school organizations teaching different programs and techniques such as woodworking, prototype making, sewing, felting, electronics, boat building, ceramics and more. I worked with children and young people ages 3-17.
My own projects include many different materials found in nature. I make hanging mobiles with branches and wool that represent different weather moods. Lately I fell in love with making pottery by hand especially Japanese tea ware.
I like researching, experimenting and creating things together with children and young people, helping them to get ideas, make connections and bring their ideas to life.
