Meet the Dutchess

The Dutchess of Orange 2


I’m so glad you’re here at my little playing area on the web.
I am Kim, otherwise known as “The Dutchess of Orange”.

Grab a cup of tea, get comfortable and let me tell you a little about myself.

I’m a Dutch girl, 36, I’m a teacher and a Creative Soul.

I teach at an elementary school,
mostly to the younger children (4 and 5 years old)
and I teach “Creative and Juicy Art” at my own studio.

I love creating stuff with my hands (and feet sometimes)
I love teaching

Bring them together & you come up with what my website is all about.

I’ve been making art for as long I can remember, from simple doodles and presents and books for my friends

I’ve bee inspired beyond description by the wonderful Connie Hozvicka of Dirty Footprints Studio. She is a wonderful teacher who taught me how to live, paint and teach Fearless and I am very honored to have been a part of Ignite.


I am also very excited to be part of 21 Secrets 2013. Together with 20 other amazing artists and teachers 21 Secrets offers 21 inspiring, soulful art journaling workshops.


The Dutchess of Orange is about living a Creative and Juicy Life, and sharing it with others.
I hope you will come visit me in my studio or join me in an online workshop!

THIS really is my studio!
