Your Background

Your Biography

As an Educator I love to inspire people, tell stories and evoce discussions about art. New media give numerous possibilities to reach out, interact and get into dialogue with our audiences. Although new media fascinate me, I prefer to mix them with traditional media for the perfect tailor made media mix. So I have to admit, I might be the biggest digibete at M&W.

New media have my interest since 2000, when I started being in charge of the website of the Royal Cabinet of Paintings Mauritshuis and was project manager of the new website. In 2006 I started working at the Van Gogh Museum as Head of Education. I got more and more interested in the strategies to use new media as part of education and museum strategy, resulting a.o in our App Yours, Vincent (about Van Gogh's Letters) and the blog Bedroom Secrets (about the restoration of Van Gogh's painting The bedroom).
