(1996) studied illustration at AKV | Sint Joost in Den Bosch. Her illustrations have appeared in Trouw, Mest Magazine, Hard//hoofd and One World, among others. In her work she responds to things that fascinate her such as social phenomena that raise questions. To be able to experiment with the use of different materials she makes traditional illustrations with for instance wax crayons, oil pastels, gouache or coloured paper. In 2021 she illustrated a poem by Babeth Fonchie for the Winternachten festival programme Erfstukken (Heirlooms).

At the request of Writers Unlimited, five authors wrote a letter to a family member of another generation asking: "What concern or fear about this time would you like to present to a family member in the past or in the future?" Five artists responded to the letters and created an unique illustration. Graphic designer Herman van Bostelen turned it into a paper gem: from leporello to postcard.
