Ankie was born on September 29, 1949 in Amsterdam. She was educated for nursing in Haarlem and Delft.
On her 24th she stopped nursing and chose for the education Creative Crafts A and B at “the Hazelhorst” in Delft.
Followed by a five-year program Drawing, Painting and Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam.
Under the guidance of teachers like George Belzer, Woody van Amen, Klaas Gubbels she learned how to observe
and got an eye for detail. To earn some money in the meantime she followed the course Repro Technical Education
at the Graphic Lyceum.

In the late nineties Ankie entered into three-dimensional shaping with her ceramics. She developed a personal style
with her shapes. See the man-sized figures and the animals with striking characteristics of the creatures.

Very special are the colourful grave monuments where she was inspired by the personality and life of the deceased.
