In 2007 she graduated from the Advanced Academic Education of Journalism (Lessius College). Her final paper was turned into a book. An worked for Clavis Publishing for a while. Today she spends most of her time on journalism and writing. Picture books, though, are her biggest passion:
I don’t know where my passion for picture books came from; I’ve loved them ever since I was a little girl and that feeling stayed with me when I became an adult.
Now I am always on the lookout for those special gems touching or funny stories with beautiful illustrations in bookstores and libraries, wherever I am. When I find one, I walk around with a wonderful feeling of joy all day long. It’s the same feeling I get when a story of my own is growing’ in my head.” She lives in Vorst-Laakdal, Belgium.
