Artist - Jidske van de Klundert

Kunstenares Jidske van der Klundert
Jidske has spent her life trying to live as a grey mouse in the world of "all the other people". A life that for her resulted in an impossible task, a task she no longer wanted to take on. Fortunately, a turnaround came.
She was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD and slowly her shortcomings turned into special qualities in which she found strength.
She learned to see herself as she really was. Poetry and photography gave her a tool to show this to others as well.
The bird of paradise that she drew for this pair of socks symbolizes the transformation from the grey mouse she tried to be to the bird of paradise she actually always was.
