ABOUT ME

I like to share some relevant information. 

Born at The Hague in The Netherlands I followed highschool at Sacré Coeur.  From 1959-1960 I studied in Meadville PA USA with an AFS scholarship. And guess what, the FBI asked me to apply. However, I returned home and started my first job at the American Embassy in The Hague. I married a medical doctor and we have three daughters. Anno 2019 we have eleven grandchildren as well. For almost 20 years I owned my own business Art Poetry & Design and I worked with many wellknown artists and poets in commissioned projects. I wrote books, poetry, organized art exhibitions, gave lectures, travelled the world and presented many events. In 2001 I was a member of the first governmental Female Trademission in  Berlin. Next to this I was a member of several Boards and worked as a volunteer.

In 1991 I was the 'founding mother' of the Peter van Tilburg Foundation, to honor my father. Since 2006 this organisation has a more international name: Talent Foundation PvT.

Family, friends and contacts worldwide

Your family is your sanctuary  is a statement I cherish.

I like to include my friends and contacts in this.Being hearing impairedit’s a treasure to be able to stay in touch with everyone of them through What’s app, LinkedIn, Facebook and WordFeud.

After retirement new challenges came along. I wrote several books among them a children's book. It was the  starting point for The Story Hat, a performance for children in schools, children’s hospitals and homes for the elderly. Performing for  a.combination of people with dementia and toddlers turned out to be  worthwhile for both groups. During the world exhibition the Floriade  (2012) I gave many performances for school classes and tourists.

The Story Hat has been published in Dutch, English and German.
