My career as an Art Director started at the Barbie department at Toys 'R Us, where I realised my function 

'in charge of the Barbie department' meant i was absolutely not in charge of the Barbie department.

('What do you mean with it's not up to me what the Barbie department looks like? Why am i not supposed to call Mattel Inc. for instore marterial suggestions? And why the hell is it none of my business how the barbies are displayed in 'Het Grote December Sinterklaarboek?'). I was 17.

For me, it was very clear I had to do something creative before i would turn into a crumpy old lady with a somewhat weird love for barbies,

but still not in charge of the Barbie department.

I became a student at the Junior Academy for Art Direction, Amsterdam, where i graduated in 2007.

And yes, it's still a big dream of mine to work for Mattel. As an Art Director.

Six agency's and nine years of experience later i have devoloped myself as an allround Art Director specialized in:

- atl/btl and digital campaign concepts

- conceptual design

- guiding brand designs & concepts
