About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Kunstenaar
Location Culemborg, Gelderland, Netherlands
Introduction I was born 55 years ago in the town of Heerlen in the south of the Netherlands. I have two adult boys and a grandson. I was trained as a fashion designer and spent some years of my life designing childrens ware. But my creative urges led in more directions including photography, painting and ceramics. I've lived through some pretty rough years having to cope with a progressivly crippling desease whilst raising the boys. Now, with my new partner Evert things are looking better all the time. Time to look into who I am, time for all the crazy brainwaves I get and time to create something new out of it all. The endless possibilities of felting turn out to be just what I need. Felting is a lot like painting: layering coloured fabrics in a form-free way creates something other fabric techniques can't. But felting is also a material thing. Like the feeling of clay in the hands of a sculpter, the feeling of wool slowly turning into felt as you work it is essential for me. My partner who is a landscape painter - see his link - has shown me to look at nature as an other source of inspiration for my use of natural fibres and colors.
