I have been a violinist with the Dutch Philharmonic Orchestra (NedPho) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I was born in Bucarest, Romania, where I studied violin at the Music Academy.
I am living and working in Holland since 1978 and have during the last ten years extended my art activities with extensive painting, etching and lately animation film making.
Since the beginning of 2021 I am a sworn interpreter and translator Romanian.
I am married to Hein van Dijk and have two children, dr. Diana and
prof. dr. David.
