Since 1986 I have been designing costumes for many different disciplines
(opera, youth-theatre, mime, drama) and groups in Holland (OT, Het Zuidelijk Toneel, De Toneelmakerij, CARVER, De Nederlandse Opera, de Toneelmakerij Firma Rieks Swarte, Orkater, De Nationale Reisopera etc)
In recent years I won the Wijnberg Scenography price (2012) with the whole creative team for a youth-theatre adaption of The Tempest, wich has played in Moskou last september.
Also I have won "de zilveren krekel" 2013 for two of my costumedesigns from last year:" Pinokkio" and "Mehmet the conqueror". My work is all about layering and how mixing every day life materials in my designs can create a whole new illusion.
Mehmet the conqueror has won the "gouden krekel 2013".
This year the youth-production of Nt-jong ZebraZebra has won "de zilveren krekel 2014" I designed the costumes for that play and may still win a gold one.
I also work in Dortmund, in the stadtheater. We did "verbrennungen" and this year we are working on "death of a salesmen".
I have been teaching costumedesign at the Amsterdam theatre-school in the scenography departement since 2006.
