She was founder, director Theatre Het Klein in Eindhoven, Holland, 1975 - 2005 and founder and art director Project Klein in Eindhoven from 2005. Her work includes theatre decor, costume design, modern dance choreography, theatre direction, acting, mime, video, computer animations, and 3D multimedia installations. She uses an interest in science, especially physics, as inspiration.

Her work finds expression in 2D painting, modern dance choreography and 3D computer animation. She says she is searching for new forms of expression that can bridge communication between material appearance and the virtual world of art.
