Aafke is a 25 year old artist from the Netherlands. ''Growing up I was a lot outside: playing in the forest, racing around on an old bike, skateboarding through the neighbourhood or doing sports. The moments I was inside I would sit in silence creating, drawing or writing own made up stories.''
In 2022 she retired from being a pro-cyclist. During here career she struggle with an eating disorder. After her retirement she became ambassador for '(W)eet wat je doet'.
Now she focusses mostly on her art:
''My paintings are mostly traditional watercolor. Subjects you can find in my art are mainly nature, animals, people. Sometimes I lean more to recreating feelings or thoughts as other moments I love a bit of simplicity and just creating.''
