This is Ivon.

Ivon lives in a big house in Maria Hoop with her kids & cat.

She’s beautiful at hosting other family members & friends, too.

Ivon loves working in the garden, creating linocuts, making colorful drawings & paintings and working with wood.

Plus she enjoys singing along with & dancing to songs by ABBA, K’s Choice & REM.

On weekdays, Ivon guides children ages 6 to 12 at the Vrije School Christophorus in Roermond.

This school follows the educational design of Rudolf Steiner, meaning children are nourished at the level of their heart, head and hands, thereby protecting their authenticity.

Speaking of authenticity: Ivon creates her own teaching material and supports it by gorgeous board drawings, like the one of the Norwegian god of thunder Thor you see below.

This is an ode to Ivon.
