My name is Monica Oldenburg, I am woman, artist, photographer, inhabitant of Amsterdam. I am a bilingual linguist, dreamer, globetrotter and homebody. I am a tired optimist who's cheerful and melancholy. An individualist who wants to belong. An Indigo Adult, and soul mate of Jan Ronald Crans. We are both urban hippies. We're mostly online nomads, but love to travel in real life too. Iphone in hand.
I grew up listening to Bryan Ferry, David Bowie and the Doors.
Other artists that inspired me over the years are: Oscar Wilde, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Gaudi, Paul Coelho, Hester Schroor, Victoria Frances, Diane Arbus, Man Ray, Michael Parkes, Micha Klein, Jason Brooks.
I love pagan, folk, tribal and gothic art like: music, tattoos, dreadlocks, piercings, petro glyphs, standing stones, magic circles. I love the Middle Ages, Fantasy Festivals, Renaissance Fairs, and hippie places like Ibiza, Goa, Valle Elqui, Kathmandu,Marrakech, Santa Cruz (ca), Baja California, etc.
