Ingrid van Amsterdam is a multimedia creative whose work emphasises time and space and the relativity thereof.

She was born in the Netherlands in 1965, and was surrounded by art and photography every day from an early age by the influence of her artist/photographer father Antoon Robben, mother Nel van Amsterdam (photographer), and her brother Louis van Amsterdam, artist. For Ingrid, becoming involved with the arts was only a matter of time ~ with inevitable sidetracks (“off” course!) on the way!

Ingrid moved to New Zealand in 1988, and is a graduate of the Diploma of Creative Technologies at the Western Institute of Technology Taranaki in New Plymouth.
