Jeanine lives and works in the Provence of Zeeland in the Netherlands. Born and bred on the shores of the North Sea, she always gravitated towards the sea. Walking along the coast, watching the churning seas, feeling the crunching of seashells under her feet, and listening to the squawking of seagulls has always been an important part of her life.

She take pictures, and collect all sorts of objects she find along the way. The photos and the beach finds are her inspiration and some of the items become part of her designs.
