Designers from n/a, utrecht, Netherlands
I learned the craft of print design at a fashion academy in my home country of the Netherlands and went on to design prints and garments for a wide variety of high street brands. Finding the potential life of my prints cut short by the ‘undo’ key and mass production, I sought a new way to interact with them, a way to allow them to grow and become unique. After moving to London and completing an MA in Applied Imagination at Central St Martins, I began to develop prints that celebrated inherent imperfection, either in the print itself or the interaction between the print and the material it was applied to. This experimentation led, amongst other things, to clay and a love of the beauty that arises from the ‘distress’ that the clay causes the print. Based in London, I now mainly produce tiles, ceramics and wallpaper. Some of my designs are in stock and others need to be ordered. You can contact me for more information.
