Carin, or Caatje as her friends & family call her, lives on a wild & remote Dutch island just north of the Netherlands.
She works on the small island as an archivist.
Nearly every room in her home is a creative space. She paints, draws, makes books, and sews from her cozy island nest.
She rambles around the island on long walks taking beautiful photos which she shares with the world on her BLOG.
Caatje fills her handmade books with images, thoughts, sketches, and ideas until they are bursting at the seams.
And she walks. Everywhere. The island is her muse.
Can you imagine living in such a gorgeous island landscape?
Carin tells me that star gazing is breathtaking here.
This car-less island of Vlieland is remote, but perfect for a creative, solitude-loving woman.
Her assistant Peer (pronounced pair) keeps things organized in her studio.
