I was invited to do a Workshop Creative Flow at Adr. Heinen Bookstore in Den Bosch. A wonderful bookstore, one you wished you had around the corner. So much space, so much beautiful books, and a little cafe attached to it. In the cafe I held my workshop, 14 people attended, of all ages. They were […]
Hip hip hooray for 10 years @flow_magazine !! This Dutch ten years’ jubilee issue features my ongoing personal project: flowers in different stages of bloom. A project that I started three years ago, just for fun. Because flowers never fail to make me happy. And Flow never fails to make me happy either.

I’m not sure what it means, but it looks so cool to be on this nr. 1 spot in Utrecht Central Station. It’s one of the biggest public transport stations in The Netherlands. My father used to change trains there every day on his way to work, for twenty years before he retired. When he […]
I was interviewed by Flow’s Jeannette Jonker for their website. Check out the interview here in English. The Dutch interview you’ll find here.
Last week Dutch version Creative Flow was presented to Sanny and myself in Midwest, Amsterdam. A lovely afternoon, with paint and cupcakes. Film by Bram Budel.

The book is published in Germany, The Netherlands and England […]

The American publisher gave Creative Flow a different title and look, which I really like! It’s very bright and happy. They also chose different illustrations from the book for the cover. Sanny (van Loon, who illustrated the whole book) and I are sometimes really surprised about how the world of publishing is so completely different […]
