Together with Rie Cramer  she became one of the foremost (female) illustrators in the Netherlands. Her style, personal but a typical derivate of the great Art Deco drawings she had seen in her youth. Open, colorful and more detailed when compared with the best work of Rie Cramer and rooted and inspired by her birth province Zeeland where she draws inspiration from.
