She was one of the most unusual, stunning, fascinating choreographers I know. She gave dance a true emotional expression.
For her dance was not about art or ability, it was about life. Dance should be the language of life in all it's facettes. Movement as a mirror of what moves people. Her productions were a kaleidoscope of pictures, ideas and feelings, about plays and fights, lust and fear or about closeness and abscondence. She mixed dance, theatre, singing and all kinds of human expression, together with a fierce stage design, to a new beautiful yet unsettling visual and emotional experience. Her art was archaic and touching. She created pictures which somehow clung to you, came up again in your memory, with a meaning very personal but also universal.

What really appeals to me, is that she sees herself as a seamstress. She likes to sew, to work with pattern and cuts, to manipulate fabrics, to use different techniques. There are small section drawings of the pattern, and the manipulating-techniques are explained. I really love it, when artists love the way of creating something, when you feel the passion for the craft.
Her style is very sculptural, draped and architectonic, but also flowing, feminine and simple.
Her husband the illustrator Ruben Toledo is responsible for all the paintings and sketches of her fashion. What a wonderful example of a Bohemia-couple: how they work together and inspire each other.
Ooh... and I want that studio with that VIEW!

I made the wonderful experience of swimming with whale sharks in Mozambique, and I can just say it's something you will keep in your heart forever. An out-of-this-world experience...!

He is such an amazing photographer. And if it wasn't for the pictures, the titles would get me.

This is the result after the intense use of an orbital sander and white gloss paint.
