We love having ramen here - it's a beautiful space, feels a bit like being back in NYC, and the food is incredible. There are two locations, the one in De Pijp is bigger, so easier to get a table, but the other location is very cosy, so get there early if you go to that location.
Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to become an illustrator. The first time my parents asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said; 'tekenares' (this is the Dutch word for a draughtswoman).
I wasn't familiar with the term illustrator yet, but I was sure that's what I wanted to be.
Now, twenty years later, I'm working as a freelance illustrator based in Amsterdam. I've been living here for over 5 years, and I'm still in love with the city.
My work can be described as a body of research in which different moments in time and space run together in a field that seems to embody a determination of time to present proof of it’s discrete, unique moments. I create stories that rise around the system of time and space.
I’m fascinated by the systems that exist behind the direct surface of the visual world.
