About the author

Hester van Overbeek is a passionate crafter, who has always had a keen interest in interior design—even when she was a child, she drew little interior plans for her bedroom. When she moved to England’s southeast coast and had the opportunity to redecorate a beach house, her passion for craft and DIY was rekindled and the website was born. The website features craft tutorial videos and interior tips, and Hester’s work is often found in magazines such as "Reloved." She has also been featured in "Ikea Magazine" and the Dutch magazine "Libelle." As well as maintaining her website, Hester also works as a hair and makeup artist. Born in the Netherlands, Hester has lived in the UK for the past ten years.
