Welcome to my website! I am Marretje, a passionate ecologist, marine biologist and agrologist. As an ecologist, I see every aspect of life as small part of a bigger network. I specialise in the interaction of our food system with the world around us, specifically on how it affects sensitive ecosystems. I would like to use my skills to make a positive change through research, science communication and storytelling.

"The first law of ecology is that everything is related to everything else"

Growing up in a family of photographers and art lovers, a sense of composition has been tought to me from a young age. Only recently I realised I am ready to call myself a photographer, portraits being my expertise. I do not feel comfortable to share these intimate moments with the subject on my website, but feel free to take a look to see what else I have been up to!
