About me & my work:

Born in Holland then migrating to Monbulk in the Dandenong Ranges outside Melbourne when I was 9. A beautiful place I still call home.

20 years ago I started as a florist, sculptor and installation artist then requests and commissions turned to creating and designing everything from vertical gardens, rooftop gardens, furniture, food, interiors and eventually complete buildings. Always combining recycled and endlessly recyclable materials.
