In the 25 years she worked as curator at the VU, she organised countless exhibitions and purchased work by important artists at an early stage, often in the form of a commission. In doing so, she laid the foundation for the current art collection displayed on campus. Apart from having a nose for talent, she was a striking personality. With her free spirit, guts and humour, she managed to connect the visual arts and the academic community in an inimitable way.
