I’m Lau, short for Laurien and I’m here to help you to reclaim your creative side.

From my life experiences as a pedagogue, teacher, mother, surfer and artist I’ve become an expert at being guided by my heART. This is an awesome feeling that I want to share with you! I believe whole-heartedly in the power of your heART and I think that making time for your creativity is as necessary as fresh air.

Some things you might want to know about me:

I’m forever curious and a life-long learner. I love surfing, open-hearted conversations, books and music. I’m married to Martijn, we enjoy our son Erwin, and we currently live in Tilburg, the Netherlands. I’m blessed with two sisters and a whole bunch of surf sisters around the globe. I’m also a proud aunty of my nephews.


So what brought me here?

I grew up in a warm and loving family. I spend most of my childhood playing outdoors, surrounded by horses and cats, which is where my deep connection with nature and creativity is rooted.

Living in San Sebastián for 5 years with the ocean on our doorstep introduced me to the world of surfing. Chasing waves triggered me to reclaim my creative side and it transformed my life completely. Surfing, creativity, motherhood, and life inspire me endlessly. They bring me joy, adventure and connection, which is where my heART lies. From the intersection between my knowledge and passions, I try to shape a (personal) world of peace, creativity, freedom and love.
