'I like to create beautiful, warm and festive little rituals relating to important happenings in life. This way they become experiences always to remember.'
As a little girl, I was already sure that I wanted to become an inventor of Beautiful Things. After several occupational wanderings, I came 'home' in 1991 as one of the first students of the Interior Styling School at Artemis Academy in Amsterdam. This education gave my love of styling and my slumbering talent for inventing beautiful things a sure footing.
I have inherited a passion for textiles, paper and patterns from my mother and grandmother.
Designs and patterns on even the simplest things can make me feel completely happy: a Russian candy wrapper, a roll of drawer paper from Tyrol or the paper around the French farmer's bread.
My desire to create beautiful things, my love for paper designs and my need for little rituals are all embodied in my work.
At present, I work as a freelance designer and product stylist. I design my own paperwork but I also love designing patterns for other companies.
