About Me


I'm an artist from the Netherlands; mostly assemblage and collage but I also draw, paint, bind books, make prints etc. As for the 9-to-5: I'm a games designer.

I like old things. I like beauty. I like people.

Favorite Books

Not so much particular titles - but I have some favourite writers: Neil Gaiman, Jack Vance, Neal Stephenson, Garth Nix, Douglas Coupland. And more. Many more.

Favorite Movies

Collecting movies is one of my guilty vices. So it's near impossible to pick a favourite. I've seen these movies a lot of times, though: All the Indiana Jones movies - Sex, Lies & Videotape - Prospero's Books - Brazil. I have a number of favourite directors as well: Greenaway, Gilliam, Kubrick, (early) Spielberg. Some TV series I like a lot: Red Dwarf, Lost, Firefly.

I could go on for a while...

Favorite Music

Dead can dance, Lisa Gerrard, Placebo, They Might be Giants, Ultravox, Kate Bush. Anything from the 80s and Slay Radio...

Not really into

Pink & fluffy stuff. Disney, Diddle. Unicorns or faeries. Hello Kitty. You catch my drift :)

Very much into

Old stuff: paper, newspapers, photographs, books. Sand, stones, shells, beads & seeds. Glass bottles. Marbles. Boxes. Lists. Museums (especially the ones that time forgot and that have hardly any visitors coming in...).

Comment: Oh. my. god. Mail like this makes me happy for weeks ^0^ Thank you for your more than generous package and the totally amazing artwork!! The snakes are terrific and there are many interesting details on the cards. You deserve a million hearts!!
Response: Aaah! Glad you like it. I was a little apprehensive - you might have hated snakes! Thanks for the rating and the (million) heart(s). :D
Comment: This was such an amazing envelope to open!!!! I love the cards, so much!!! They are so original and so well illustrated, thank you! I also love the little tidbits with it. A million hearts and hugs. Thank you!!!!!

Comment: Thank you so much for all the ATCs and extras, they're really cool! (I think "Misja" is an awesome name, lol) ;)
Response: Guess we'll have to join the cool names club, then ... ;D Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the ATCs! I'm glad you had fun and enjoyed the swap.
Response: Thanks for the rating - I hade fun making them!
Comment: Misja! It works, it works, it works! Thank you for the very cool looking kaleidocycle. :o)
Response: Wheeee! Yours works really well. I have it on my desk, next to my computer and I often end up playing with it. It's a bit of a magical object, isn't it?
Comment: This matchbox is SO cool! I love the size and how sturdy it is. And your drawings are really lovely. :) I'm thinking the word is "deer"...? Pictures of a deer, ent (I had to look that up!), elephant and rain? But maybe not because deer is one of the pictures? Could be "reed". Let me know!! Also, if you want to make a matchbox in the future, [here's the template I used](http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/how-tuesday-matchbox-valentines-with-rachel-johnson-6948/). It was pretty fun making one. :)
Response: haha - you nearly got it. But 'deer' would be a bit of a giveaway if one of the pictures is a deer... It was: Trunk Rain Ent Elk (a tricky one, this). So the word was TREE. And I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the <3

Comment: This was so late and SO worth the wait. I am so happy you chose me to give this spectacular work of art a welcome home! I am ecstatic and can't wait to see more of your art! :D
Response: Wow, thanks for the praise! :D I'm glad it got there in one piece (it did, right?) and I'm really glad you like it. Your profile was fairly specific and I tried to make something that would fit it. It seems to have worked :D Thanks for the heart, and again: sorry it was so late.

Response: The angel was fun to make. In fact the whole ATC was fun to make. Wish I had had more time, because I had some more ideas, and I would have made bunch of them for you. Thanks for the heart.

indigo rated for Personal Shrine on Jul 29, 2009
Comment: What a lovely little shrine. It made it across the Atlantic mostly intact. I adore it.
Response: Argh: MOSTLY intact? Anything critical broken? :( I could probably tell you how to fix stuff, so let me know if I can be helpful in any way (as if you wouldn't be crafty enough to try it yourself). But I am glad you like it... kinda special that a sea shrine makes it across the Atlantic :D
