Children’s Book Festival

Tom Schamp is an illustrator who’s work I really admire. I had the chance to meet him during the Dutch Children’s Book Festival and I asked him to sign one of his books for me…and look, he didn’t only sign it but also drew me a mermaid !


Mermaid’s tableware

It was a lot of fun making my own tableware . I decorated it with mermaids, jellyfish and seahorses. Now all I need to do is put it in the ceramic oven.







Mermaids Parade in New York

On the 22nd of June the beginning of summer was celebrated with the annual

Mermaids Parade on Coney Island. I would have loved to go there!



A Mermaids show !

I was at the opening of a Mermaids show in the Teylers Museum in Haarlem, a town on the Dutch coast. There were beautiful mermaids from all over the world !

Off course I was very proud that my app ‘The Mermaid’s Shoes’, was part of the exhibition.
