'I was born in the Netherlands. I left for Hong Kong for my work as a fashion designer. I left Hong Kong for Italy with a new hobby: Pottery.
I live in Italy now where I left fashion for the world of ceramics. My most recent public appearance was during the Milan Design Week (September 2021) at the 1000 Vases Show at Superstudio Pi, including a five-page publication in the 1000 Vases book.'
