About

I am inspired by nature and all the things that occur around me. When I make new designs I  follow my intuition. When I’m done, I look at my work, analyze it and continue with the treasures and discard the rubbish.

To justify my love for productmaking, in a world of over-consumption, I make small only a batch of a product, just enough to be able to offer design products for a affordable fair price for everyone. In the near future I would love to work together with with small workshops, to produce my products. Fair, Eco, Sustainable and Loveable.

In my atelier I work with ceramics, wood, textiles, making use of Laser cutting machines, 3D-printers to make useful products. The products I make are for example tableware, jewelry, clothing, bags, interior articles. But sometimes i’m also am busy making illustrations, collage-art and abstract paintings. In short my work is quite diverse and i like to keep it that way.  My background is in graphic design, I think my love for minimalism and clean lines comes from there.
