My Story

How I became an artist

It was always my dream to become an artist, a dream that I was afraid to say out loud. I thought it was not possible to be an artist. As a young kid, I liked to draw and paint but when I got older other priorities came up. In 2012 I started painting because I felt a deep desire to express myself. I went to an open group from Sasja Bork in the Netherlands. I was so nervous the first time I entered the studio, but everybody was so nice and open. I made my first painting in acrylic guided by Sasja. When it was finished, I looked at it and was so proud of myself. That was a feeling I never felt before. After a few years (and rejections from dutch art academies), the Mastery Program crossed my path. It felt like this was the moment for me to step into my destiny, I subscribed. My goal was to learn more skills, to discover my voice and feel more freedom in my paintings. At that time I had a fulltime job but I felt so determined to become a professional artist, I spent all my free time studying and painting. I also joined on the Milan art retreat in Greece, that was such a great experience. In august 2019 I graduated and I knew everything I had to know to start up my art business! After a few months I became a coach and mentor for the Mastery Program. So I can be your mentor when you sign up for the mentor option ,

Art I made during the program

Take a look at the artistic journey

During the Mastery Program I made a lot of drawings and paintings. Before the Mastery Program I made 2 or 3 paintings a year. I couldn’t believe that I was able to make 2 paintings a week, but I did and I still paint a lot. Here you can see some of the work I made during the Mastery Program. Drawings in charcoal, graphite, paintings and mixed media pieces with inks, collage, spray paint, goldleaf, acrylic and oil paint. A lot of these artworks are sold.
