I have four sisters

I grew up in a village in the suburbs of Paris
I was twelve when they set foot on the moon for the first time 

I have four sisters
but no brothers

my parents are Dutch, and so am I
but I write more easily in French than in Dutch

I followed two courses at artschool
a long time ago 

I made paintings with titles like
'so alone and no money'
and a film starring a real pig
with music by Bach

but in the end
I lost my heart
to children's literature

I live in Amsterdam
with my life partner

our son left home
fortunately leaving the two cats with us
