Hi! I'm Rian, I live in the Netherlands in a small but beautiful town, Zutphen, together with my boyfriend (a famous poet in the Netherlands) and my dog Holly! I am a teacher in arts for children age 12-18. Last August I managed to open and fill my Etsy shop. I like to illustrate, paint with acrylics (I love Lynn Whipple and Carla Sonheim) and create jewelry out of trash. I have signed up for Carla Sonheims this year's class Y is for yellow. I also signed up for last year's class Year of the spark. It's really inspiring to see and talk to people from all over the world about art :) So I definitely have an interest in art!
More about my life and the things I love: - coffee in the morning - tea all day (white, green and jasmin) - doglover (especially my own Jack Russel Holly) - nailpolish (red is favorite) - dresses & skirts I almost never wear jeans - Asian food - foodie (like to try! Love to cook!) - love graphic designs - sculpturing - shoe addict (love the brand ART!) - gardening (I have my own greenhouse) - my chickens called Attila de Hen, Henkje, Hendrickje - the color blue....of course :) My eyes are also blue! - start running (goal 5K) - red wine! - flowers (last summer I visited the gardens of Monet) - photography - trying to read one book an month (my boyfriend reads two books a week..hahaha) - seriously addicted to cookbooks. I think my cookbooks cover 5 meters :) - lover of old cars like VW beetle and camperbus + 2CV (unfortunately they are to expensive, so I have my own collection of small ones. I would love to rent a real one just for a weekend) - Swedish design
Things I dislike: - black tea - I like to see and draw cats, but I'm allergic to them
Pop (I grew up in the 80's and 90's) I am a fan of the 'old' Madonna. I stopped buying cd's after Confessions on a dancefloor. This one is perfect listening while running. Recent likes are Belgian bands like Oscar and the Wolf. I also bought music from Some Swedish bands.
Recently I discovered Jazz. I love it! I would like to Go to de Dutch North Sea Jazz next Year.
