Hello, my name is Petra !

Amsterdam · Member since May 2014
Petra graduated from high school with exceptional grades for her drawing exam. After graduating she moved to Paris for a year. In this city her love for art blossomed. Back in Holland she finished her Graphic Design study at the Grafisch Lyceum of Amsterdam and Art Direction at The International school of Communication Arts. Since 1996 she worked as an art director for renowned international advertising companies (both in Amsterdam and London) like JWT, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy.
In 2004 she quit her job as art director to become a fulltime artist in order to create her magical 'Heart-World universe'. Petra (Heart) set up her own Charity Foundation Heart-World (Making a Better World) for everyone who loves children.
In 2010 she exhibited at Art Amsterdam for the first time, after having a successful group exhibition, ‘Manga in Amsterdam’, at the Kerseboom Gallery. Since September 2010 she had several international exhibitions at the Wanrooij Gallery Amsterdam in Brussels, Hamburg, London and New York City. In 2012 she had another successful group exhibition at the Kerseboom Gallery ‘Memorable Encounters‘.

Petra lives and works in Amsterdam.

Nous avons passé une excellente soirée. Un accueil convivial, en petit comité avec des personnes très intéressantes. Petra nous a parlé de son travail d'artiste et c'était un réel plaisir de découvrir le quotidien des Hollandais. Nous avions le sentiment de passer la soirée chez des amis.
Le prix est peut-être un peu onéreux pour la prestation gastronomique, mais nous sommes surement plus exigeants en tant que Français.
Nous serions très heureux de revoir Petra et son ami Boss et nous recommandons cette expérience pour la qualité des échanges. Cela apporte un nouveau regard sur Amsterdam et notre voyage.

Wonderful evening with Petra. We were 6 guests new to Amsterdam and enjoyed a lot our dinner with our host. The setting was amazing with a nice view on the new quays. Petra is a very good cook, and a nice host: overall a great experience! I strongly recommend going to Petra's if you travel to Amsterdam!
