I am Sonja, a creative nerd, in my thirties. Together with my husband and 2 cats, I live life in a little city just South of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
web design, coding & photography
I build websites since 1997. I have always liked and still like to enter my creative head-space in the digital world. I did take a long break from coding but decided to pick that back up in 2023. Also, in the past, one day, I wanted to capture a some photos that I could use to make my websites more pretty. Not knowing that I would end up with a love for photography.
sailing & travel
I have always enjoyed being around water! And I love to sail on our 25ft sailboat. It would be a dream to one day make a big passage and wonder elsewhere. At the moment a "big passage" for me is to sail to Belgium/France, or the UK! My sailing mentality comes from my wanderlust. Therefor I also enjoy to travel occasionally!
music, violin and then piano
I like listen to music non-stop, who doesn't? And at the age of 34 I decided to commit to learn how play the violin so maybe one day I can make music myself! During the 2020-2022 pandemic I had a bit of time to spare so I started to learn how to play the piano also! I keep track of my progress on my YouTube channel. Which has given me some basic video editing skills.
art, fountain pens & filofax
I get joy from writing by hand. And I do that with a collection of fountain pens and different kinds of colors of ink. And I really like to write all things down in one of my filofax planners. One of the things I like to scribble down are my thoughts in poems, drawings and alike.
