Annick Sickinghe is a visual artist and musician from Amsterdam. Born into a family of artists, she lives and breathes creativity. Annick makes up half of the singer-songwriter and artist duo StudioMedemens, and plays percussion in the twelve-piece brassband Valvetronic. Recently she branched out into documentaries, creating films about her grandparent's artistry ("Teveel Leuk"), and her personal battle with cancer and its aftermath ("Later"). Her work radiates a fascination and love for the adventure of life. In addition to this, Annick writes, draws, photographs, designs, experiments, jumps in puddles, rocks jumpsuits, dances in the rain, swims in freezing cold water, and loves the colour orange. Grote Blij ("Big Happy"), as she and her friends call it, is Annick's life motto. It means getting pleasure and zest for life out of making things.
