I was born in the urban area of the Netherlands.
In 2013 I moved with my husband to a very small village in a less populated area.
I have 3 adult daughters (1986, 1988, 1989), 3 grandsons (2012, 2018, 2019) and a granddaughter (2019)
I am a professional artpainter and find my inspiration in nature and animals, but I also like to knit all kind of things and I like to recycle and re-use all kind of materials to create new things for home decoration, clothes or toys. I like reading, writing, photography and working in my garden. I am fond of my big white cat Maurits and my little cat Milouska, which was adopted from Romania.
I work for two half days a week as a volunteer in a preschool for children aged 2-4 years and enjoy this very much.
I collect stamps from all countries of the world. Looking for a way to receive new stamps in a time that everyone uses email, I found Postcrossing. But instead of taking the stamps from the cards I keep the cards as complete as I receive them.
I will be happy with every postcard that I receive, but I prefer cards that show something about the country, the town or the area you live in. And please tell me something about yourself.
