It didn't matter what camera I held in my hands, I just loved experimenting with light and composition ever since I discovered photography as a young girl. I taught myself how to edit, took a little photography course to learn the techniques and at the age of 18, I started the study Lifestyle & Design at the Willem de Kooning art school. I'm very interested in identities and style and I wanted to learn all about fashion, concepts and life there. I made sure I photographed as much as I could during the assignments and I ended up interning in New York City for the talented photographer Joanna Totolici. In 2012 I graduated and I've been working freelance all over Europe ever since. In 2014 I'm planning to take over Down Under.
