I am Jet, the mother of four children. The five of us live with our two Dutch Smous dogs in Amsterdam Oud West. Three floors at the back, without a lift, I always say. I attended the Amsterdam School of Arts and was trained as a theatre-maker and drama teacher.
I have been working as an interior designer now for several years. For as long as I can remember, I've been interested in houses and how they are decorated. I always had a preference for older houses, preferably dilapidated and overgrown by bramble bushes! I enjoyed sketching houses and frequently used to change my room around.
When I was a child, I had no idea that you could actually make a career out of it. When I was still creating performances, the décor and design of a theatre production was just as important to me as, for example, directing the piece. Later on, renovating became my favourite occupation and I eventually turned it into a profession. Here, everything comes together.Follow Jet
