Roos was born in Haarlem, after which Harlem in New York was named. Her father was a journalist who traveled a lot. Her mother was mostly at home, later she worked in a museum. She has one younger sister.
As a child Roos loved to climb trees, wander around, draw, and watch people. Later she got into traveling, sports, partying and art. After studying Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, and 3 years of living in New York City, she realized that what she want most is to create, and inspire others with my work.
At the moment Roos is working on a book: a bike guide of NYC, with bike routes all over town, stops & sights, portraits & interviews with New York cyclists; personal drawings, photographs and stories.
