Birgit loves to get her hands dirty and experiment with all kinds of media, combining contrasting colors and working with stamps, stencils, inks, acrylic paints and markers.
She began with scrapbooking and later fell in love with mixed media, art journaling, and eventually mono printing and layered collage canvas art. Today she teaches and demonstrates in her home studio as well as in workshops around the world.
She has taught online classes and works as a freelancer for magazines and manufacturers. Birgit has collaborated with and designed for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LTM, WOW! Embossing Powder, Prima Marketing Inc, and Tattered Angels. Currently she is a designer for the French magazine Histoire de Pages and the UK magazine Craft Stamper. She is a member of the Gelli Arts Creative Team and has a product line with Carabelle Studio.
Birgit is married and a mother of three and lives in a little village in the north of the Netherlands.
