Atelier  Catharina, about me

I was born in 1965 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I have lived here all my life. It’s where I went to school, studied law, found love and gave birth to a son. I still believe this romantic city is the most beautiful place in the world and it’s where I feel at home. I am a legal advisor in daily life and I have my own business.

Besides that I make art. I began making sculptures. Out of a raw piece of material I created all kinds of objects. Sculpturing is no longer my way of creating art. As of 2013 I take drawing- and painting lessons from Sandra Kruisbrink (Huize Lydia) and I developed a passion for it. Sandra’s lessons inspired me to bring to the surface capacities that I didn’t know existed within me. I now make (ink) drawings, pastels and watercolours and on top of that my love for photography emerged. My works are for sale as a print on all kinds of material in my shop that can be found on the website Please follow this link:

If you prefer to possess an original work of me, please send me an e-mail on In case you are interested to expose my work in your store, office or otherwise you are welcome to e-mail me as well. Maybe you want to have a work made especially for you. It can all be discussed.
