SURFACE DESIGN FOR BOLT FABRIC

Fashion, textiles, wallpaper

When I came from highschool I was 18 years and fairly unprepaired to start a study elsewhere, due to Pfeiffer's disease that interfered in my exam year of highschool. Despite that I never thought to pass I actually DID! YAY! A year of orientation followed and I decided to go to Art school to get a teacher's degree drawing and textiles. It was fun and inspiring, but when I had to stand in front of a class as part of my internternship I didn't feel particulary happy. I found out drawing and painting and doing things artisticly myself was far more interesting and fulfilling for me than teaching these skills to others. Back then I was tiny and shy in front of people. I felt so unhappy, that I wanted to change studies. From one of our teachers - she taught illustrating for fashion, I heard there was also a school for fashion nearby. And there were several, but I chose the one where her own daughter studied too. Years later she became famous for her awesome photo's, but back then I didn't see very much. The school was named Vogue and I could start in the second year because of my drawing/painting/illustrating background at the teacher's school. After a few years, in which I learned to work hard and starf and don't complain, I got my degree and I speciallized in reapeat patterns and prints, illustrating and designing fashion.

The rest isn't very interesting: there were not enough jobs at that time in fashion, so I was a freelancer and took every job aside. I visited Paris, Frankfurt, Lille, Cologna and Düsseldorf for shopping - inspiration and of course for fairs and shows.

I worked for a lot of companies that do not exist anymore. I got pregnant for the first time and the company I worked for then wasn't prepared to let me work parttime, so I quit. Later on I made freelance collections and pieces. But after I discovered illustrating for children's books, I didn't design anymore until I dicovered fashion again when I did a Lilla Rogers  Make Art That Sells bootcamp, in which I started to make repeat patterns and prints again. I got the bliss back and now I sell some of it on Spoonflower and Society 6.

I feel I just started...

STATIONARY AND POST CARDS

My own journals

Postcards. Love to make them. A few of my cards are being sold on Society6, others are just made for the portfolio. Recently I discovered The low content book market and now I also sell at Amazon. I make journals, most of them with self designed content, because I wanted to add some small illustrations or whenever I have an idea of the purpose.

I will most definitely make more. It's so addictive! Please feel free to visit my shop at Amazon!

If you want to have a postcard for an announcement or special occasion, please don't hesitate to contact me!
