As an extension of my column for Guitar Secrets I started my Youtube Channel:
Irene's Gypsy Jazz Adventures.

My work takes me to countries all over the world, which gives some people the impression that I am on vacation all the time. I love my work though, I'd rather do what I do than 'vacate'...

A few examples of my artwork and music-photography you can find on this website.

More info about my other rwork:

In my band 'Irene's Gypsy Swing Band', I play with musicians in different combinations, like Paulus Schäfer, Marcel Loeffler, Feigeli Prisor, Maciej Domaradzki, John Rijsdijk, Christiaan van Hemert.

Aside from music - art and writing always have been my work as well, and still are. I write a column in Robin Nolan's Gypsy Jazz Guitar Secrets Magazine, Yoga International Magazine, and published photos in several American Jazz Magazines,

I grew up in a musical family and learned to play the piano, recorder and guitar from my parents. Dancing, singing, and making music have always been a big part of who I am. Only a few years ago I discovered the genre gypsy jazz, about which I have been passionate ever since. In Amsterdam I play regular gigs with different musicians. Internationally I performed with outstanding musicians, a.o. in Hong Kong, New York, Chicago, Tampa, Sarasota, Nepal, Brazil, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia.
