Guest artist - September 2002
"Born in 1951, I started to photograph at age 16 using a very simple camera.
My interest in serious photography grew bigger when I bought my first SLR camera in 1977. I have taken many photographs during my travels to France and of course Greece, inspired by the light, deepblue skies and the colors of the different landscapes and architecture.
In the Netherlands where I live I have also taken many photographs; the beach and the farmlife in Northern Holland are favorite places to come and "shoot" the landscapes. A friend of mine, also a photographer, taught me many things; books and experiments were my other teachers. I have and always had much pleasure in capturing "the image".
The partnership with Wim, my husband, has given my pleasure in photography an extra dimension. His presentation of my work on the "Orbit Studio" site has led to a worldwide distribution of our vision."
