In 1973 heb ik eindexamen aan de Gerrit Rietveld Akademie gedaan. Mijn specialisatie was monumentale textiel en weven. Afgestudeerd onder Herman Scholten en Kitty van der Myll Dekker. Vooral het ontwerpen van stoffen vond en vind ik boeiend. Ik heb bij de Ploegstoffen in Bergeyk gewerkt, eerst als stagiaire en later als ontwerpster (Ploegstoffen bestaat niet meer). Het ontwerpen van stoffen, structuren eigenlijk, heb ik later vertaald naar andere materialen zoals perspex en papier. Zie ook een filmpje over mijn werk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksLWULWKoM4 . Daarnaast heb ik altijd geschilderd en getekend.
