Since 1990 I have been a painting and visual arts teacher at the Kunstencentrum Venlo (NL), previously known as the ‘Vrije Academie’ (art school and workplace for the visual arts). I teach ‘Sketching and painting’ and provide museum workshops ‘Perception of modern art’ in cooperation with Museum van Bommel van Dam. In 2013 I started tutoring the ‘Masterclass painting’.
Co-founder of ‘Valise atelier & natuur’ in Sevenum (NL), 2001-2013. Workshops, courses and packages on drawing & painting, nature hikes and vegetative styling. I was responsible for the painting courses and workshops in ‘de Peel’ and developed activities for adults and children, in which art and nature meet.

I participated in developing the didactic structure and objective, guiding the test schools in Venlo and Sevenum (NL) and writing the part titled ‘Textile arts in primary schools’.
