I was born and raised in The Netherlands, where I was regularly exposed to German and English since birth and started learning those languages at school from age 11.
I studied modern languages and marketing studies at the University of Salford near Manchester, England. This is a double major degree. The language I studied was German, but by doing translation from that language into English, my English language is equal in fluency to my Dutch native tongue.
The course was practical and focused on using these languages in a business setting, rather than purely literature based.
I have 10+ years’ experience in international marketing and management, but currently run my own airbrush pet and horse portrait business as an independent artist.
I can help you raise your German skills, teach you Dutch and improve your English or help you become a better and successful artist.
I was born and raised in The Netherlands and graduated High School with an A- in Dutch.
I have a degree in Modern Languages & Marketing Studies; a double major program from the University of Salford in England that combined languages and marketing for international application.
I founded and ran the North American office for the Dutch mother company for nine years. I introduced the company and product on the North American market, won two large projects with the two major carbonated soft drink bottlers, managed those projects to completion and provided after sales support.
Some of my responsibilities were Corporate management, Pre-sales, Sales & marketing, trade show and event management, public speaking, PR (press, advertising, web), purchasing, project management, after sales support, contract negotiations.
Prior to that I was involved with the development a new product and its initial launch on the market.
I currently run my own art business where I extensively use social media, direct mailing campaigns and event organization.
I’m also a member of the exclusive Sandler Presidents Club, a continuous education source for sales people.
I studied art and art history in High School, but more importantly, I apprenticed with an airbrush artist with over 35 years of experience and subsequently have been a professional airbrush artist (although I don't just use the airbrush). My specialism is highly realistic pet and horse portraits and occasionally people portraits. Having over 10 years of marketing experience I can teach you not only great painting techniques, but also the commercial know-how that makes the difference between a talented artist and a selling artist.
