Escha was born in The Hague, Holland and attended the Rudolf Steiner school learning painting drawing and art history. After finishing school she studied art in Florence, Salzburg and Holland. Escha has developed a style that combines figurative and abstractive images working together and reinforcing each other. Her work has delicate compositions and colour palettes of many of the Italian Romance artists and her use of wash like techniques adds drama and vibrancy to her paintings.
Escha now lives in Wellington and her paintings are sold here and in Europe. She has exhibited many times in solo and group shows including numerous times in her native Holland and new home New Zealand. Over 15 years Escha's exhibitions included shows in Geneva, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Venice, Vienna, New York, New Jersey, Moko City Japan and Listowel Ireland.
