A Journey of Transformation

by | Aug 18, 2023

Have you ever been at a crossroads, unsure of which path to choose, much like Alice in Wonderland? Making this choice can be exciting and a bit scary. That’s how my journey began in 2006 – a journey filled with change, discovery, and transformation.

Setting Sail from the Netherlands to Portland

Leaving your familiar home for new possibilities takes courage. In 2006, that’s what I did. I said goodbye to Amsterdam, my hometown in the Netherlands, and headed to Portland, Oregon, seeking new experiences that would change my life.

A Familiar Dilemma: “Which Path to Choose?”

Life often gives us tough decisions, like the ones Alice faced. I was in a similar situation, unsure of the path ahead. Even though things seemed uncertain, embracing change ended up bringing new creative opportunities.

Embracing the Digital Canvas: Brushes to Pixels

Life is like a constantly changing piece of art. I used to be a traditional artist with brushes and paints, but I found a new way to “tell my stories” – through digital design. Shifting from a traditional artist to a graphic designer with a laptop was a big change. It opened up a new chapter, where pixels became my paint, and the world of design became my canvas.

Igniting the Creative Spark: Creativity Within Boundaries

In graphic design, limitations can actually make ideas flow better. Just like a canvas has its edges, design projects have limits too. These limits, like time and resources, can actually lead to more creative ideas. I learned that creativity shines when it has some structure to work with.

From Lost to Found: Navigating Challenges, Gaining Clarity

Challenges often lead to finding our purpose. Moving to a new country, adjusting to a different culture, and learning a new language can be tough. But in the middle of all these changes, a path started to show itself. What was once confusing became clear. The challenges I faced helped me grow personally and make important decisions for my business.
