If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
-Maya Angelou
With a passion for images, Karlijn was schooled at the University of the Arts Utrecht (NL), where she graduated cum laude in 2011 with a specialization in cinematography. She currently works as a cinematographer on documentaries, fiction films, music videos, video-installations and commercials.
 Her work was showcased at channels and platforms among which VPRO, Xite Networks, NFF, EYE Filmmuseum, Het Nationale Theater and the Pinewood Studios in London. In 2019 Karlijn won the Best Cinematographer Award at the Close-up Reykjavik Film Festival (IS) with the short fiction film One, no one, 100.000. 

A few years ago Karlijn began exploring her skills as a director and started working together with her sister Lotte as a directing duo, the Milder Sisters. Together, they combine their different backgrounds into films and film installations. In 2019 the Milder Sisters won the Best Fantasy Short Award at the New Renaissance Film Festival (UK) with the short fiction film One, no one, 100.000. They are currently working on commissioned work and are developing their new fiction film in 2023.
