My life kind kind of has two parts that intertwine sometimes.. but for both of them I need
my creativity and social skills. My background of attending the conservatory and being a
clarinet player got me into music and arts in general, so since 18 years I have been
earning my living as a music and arts teacher at a secondary school.
But the other part of the week is where I really get my artistic stimulation. I went to
Castlefest in 2007(?) and then I met an amazing photographer (Masque Obscura) that
got me started with shoots. That led to participating in all kinds of events and shows..
and that again led to organising or helping out with events. At the moment I do about
everything creative or organisation wise; mainly in goth, fantasy, historical and vampire
events. I still model a bit, but it is not the main focus anymore.
Art wise my highlight has been that a photo that Sheridans Art took of me was in an
exposition in the Louvre... I cried when I heard that. It was part of a big worldwide
competition so it was a big honour to be acknowledged for our hard word. I also had the
chance to be part of a photo book of Viona Art, which was so much fun to make. Working
as her assistant for multiple events also was a big honour.
As far as being proud of what I created, I think that would be Emporium Vernesque. I
organised the only indoor Steampunk event in the Netherlands for 5 years. That was
I am taking it a bit slower than when I started, because that was just an insane time. Too
many shoots, too many parties. Loads of fun but exhausting. Unfortunately I have quite
heavy health issues (mainly arthrosis) so I couldn’t keep up with that pace anymore.
That is why at this moment I am mainly assisting other organisers to help make
awesome events. I hope to be able to do this for quite some time, because it is loads of
Enjoy every second of your life to the fullest! You never know when the fun stops… so try
to no regret too much, shed your insecurities and just go for it. Because why hold
yourself back or not do what you love?
La Dutchessa will model for our exhibitor SOMNIA ROMANTICA and seat as jurymember for our PUBLIC RUNWAY CONTEST! She will also be present at the reception of the VIP Guests togetherwith the members of the Organisation and the Guests of Honour.
