After a professional career as management assistant and during an eight-year stay in the USA as an expat, I revived my long lost creative side, and found out that this is where my true passion lies, crochet being number 1.

Over the years I’ve gone from giving my own little twists to existing patterns, to designing my own, most of which I share for free on my blog (

My first crochet book launched mid 2017, and I’m beyond excited about that! It’s “Eindeloos Haken” in Dutch, and “Renkli Tig Isleri” in Turkish. The English version “Colorful Crochet” can be ordered via, The Bookdepository, etc.
