Dutch artist and sculptor, who became an active member of the 1920s Hague (Den Haag) artist community both as a model and as a sculptor. Cox modelled for the artists of her day such as the French painter and pastelist Gustave Brisgand, the sculptor and her Professor Toon Dupuis, and Piet van der Hem.
On 7 August 1930, Cox married Hendrik Gerard Johan "Henri" Völcker, Heer van Soelen en den Aldenhaag (1891-1955), the Lord Protector (heer beschermer) of the village of Zoelen, a rural community in the Betuwe only accessible by river ferries. Neither the remoteness of her new home nor her married status stopped Cox from making regular trips to The Hague, to the beach at Scheveningen, to Leerdam, to Gouda etc, either with Henri or by herself. At Soelen she set up her atelier in the gatehouse.
On 18 September 1932 C.C. van Asch van Wijck gave birth to a son, Johan Adolph "Dolph" Völcker, Heer van Soelen en den Aldenhaag, Oud and Niew Hinklenoord whom she named for her youngest sister. She did not survive the birth.
