My favourite hour of our twenty-four-hours-in-Amsterdam was going to visit Maartje van den Noort in her studio.
I wrote about Maartje's work in Illuminate but I never got to meet her at the time.
I wrote about her studio - an old sailors home on the dockside with grand stairs, high ceilings and huge windows. It was as lovely as I imagined.
Look how beautiful the light was.
I love her work. Her drawings excite and inspire me. She makes such beautiful lines.
It seems we are inspired by similar things and we had a lot to talk about.
It's always nice to talk with other artists about their processes and their dreams.
I could have stayed chatting and drinking tea for many hours but it was time for us all to go.
Maartje, thankyou for having us. It was a joy. I look forward to seeing you next year when you come to visit England.
Have a look at Maartje's lovely work on her website here.
