Drawing and painting
It was last year when she was 55 years old, she decided to start focusing on creating art by drawing and painting. In her art she makes use of colors and the technique of dots. She concentrates a lot on the nature and also historic places on Bonaire. She is very thankful for her nephew Ger-G Winklaar and Angelo Domacasse for supporting her in bringing her art to TCB to exhibit these and also her sister Gerlinde Winklaar who supported her in making her dreams come true.
