Travelling Artist / Creative
Hey, I'm Josje. I'm an Artist, Creative & Sailor born in New Zealand. Ramatree represents my ever growing and evolving tree of life, which for me, holds a spiritual, organic & intuitive space where all my art grows from.
I have been travelling the World, predominantly by sailboat for the past six years now, mostly onboard friends and families sailboats in the 45-55 foot range. Generally, everyone on board contributes to running the boat, most of which are involved in the realm of media, documenting their travels through blog/vlog in order to fund the adventure. I've also worked for a few privately owned sailing super-yachts.
I am an artist and creative spirit at heart, constantly trying to interpret and express my fascination and love for the world that we inhabit. I create different kinds of art inspired from my travels and experiences, mostly in the form of painting and video making, the latter which I post to YouTube.
To me, art is open and expansive and thats the way I like to approach it, I like to think of different branches of creativity. Having spent most of my time at Sea with 40,000 nautical miles under the keel, I have developed a passionate love for the Ocean, where most of what I create carries an undercurrent of the magic and wonder of the big blue.
