Under the name Maskarada - Masks & More I create masks, horns, headpieces and accessoiries. All items can be found at the Etsy shop!
From time to time I like to pick up my camera and make nice shots. Mostly nature photography but I also like to create artistic images.
I love to write. Poetry, short stories, long stories and currently I'm working on my Liber Magia.
On my YouTube channel you can find artsy tutorials, vlogs about my adventures and more!
PAINTING / DRAWING
On a piece of paper, a canvas, a window or wall, or on my pc.. I like to do it all.
Whether it's a clay figure, polymer jewelry or something completely different, my hands are lucky when they can sculpt.

All my life I love making things. At primary school I drew a lot and I made polymer clay figurines. Later I made dolls out of socks, started painting and began to write. It was therefore no surprise that I went to study at the Grafisch Lyceum in Utrecht where I got my diploma in 2008.
After working as a graphic designer for a few years I missed creating things with my hands. I still enjoy designing logo's etc. but I felt like something was missing for me. Feeling certain materials, creating forms and shapes untill you end up with a little piece of art.
During my knee rehabilitation back in 2014 I started making masks, horns, headpieces and such. That has turned into the existence of Maskarada - Masks & More and I'm proud to say I've made many wearable items for an extensive number of people all over the world.
Although I love my job as mask-maker there are more things I like to do. So that was when I thought, why focus on just one thing when there is a world to explore and be my artsy self.
I picked up photography a few years ago and absolutely love making atmospheric images. Also, I am determined to finish the stories I started on and write even more after they are finished. Overall I just want to create more. Because, well, I'm a bit creative. (BIT, aka ItB - Ilse ten Broeke).
Is there something I can create for you or help you with? Shoot me a message!
And ofcourse feel free to browse the shop or check the gallery andt my YouTube channel!
