Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her in "Bringing the past back to life - Dutch artist with a sense of adventure is making her mark in her mark in the world of archeological drawing" by Helen Khal, Daily Star, 14 October 1999: "She tells me that her astrological sign is Taurus, with Sagittarius as its ascendant. 'I'm a true Taurus,' she says, 'obstinate as a bull and with my feet firmly on the ground; but I'm lucky to have Sagittarius The Archer is there, shooting its arrows into the heavens in all directions and leading me in to adventure.'"
