Born in Gouda in 1885. It is unclear when she started as a decorator at PZH but she is registered as a ceramics painter when she gave birth to a daughter in August 1907. Fortunately, she could resume work at PZH, only to stop decorating when she married a typesetter in 1912 and had two more children with him.
She started out signing with the monogram T, found on some nice P décor. She changed her monogram in c.1908 to T.v.V. and then also signed work with PP, possibly for work done at home. Based on her oeuvre she started the latest around 1904.
