I started in 2004 with a new hobby, basketmaking, at first in my village in the Netherlands. My teacher was an old man who knew a little of basketmaking. 2 years later I started with a new teacher in Belgium, I live near the Netherlands-Belgium border. He learned me so much about basketmaking with willow. Then I looked at the internet and saw the lovely baskets made all over the world. My interest spread and I was able to go to the UK, Denmark, Germany, France, Australia and some other countries to learn from the basketmakers there. Sometimes teachers came from the USA and other countries to teach in Europe, mostly in the UK and Denmark . I am still learning, so many techniques and materials to explore. In 2021 I gratuated from Art Academie in Textile art and this give a extra dimension to my artwork. In the meanwhile, I am teaching as much as possible all those techniques to curieus people,  who want explore the basketry and textile world. Last summer I started a new project, it's not ready yet so it keeps a little secret. When it's finished I let you know.
