Ciler Ilhan (writer) : “A lot of people might tend to think artists have their minds usually having a stroll say in Mars or Venus… But in fact, being a successful artist takes more than being “just” creative. At our first meeting, I knew Quirine had the perfect mix: Being target-oriented, very smart, very gifted, open minded, brave and patient. She took me to a challenging journey where I could not have got there on my own. She taught me a lot of things -and I was quiet confident that I knew already a lot about being on stage. Well. There is no end to learning; particularly if it comes from a bright, hard working, sensitive and wonderful person like Quirine. I can not thank her enough for giving her time, her wisdom, her soul, into my Tedtalk”.
