Myrte De Zeeuw's Profile
After ten years working in fashion as a designer for major Dutch brands I wanted to work in a more environmentally friendly and creative environment. I decided to create that environment myself. I drew a kingfisher with a technique I developed illustrating for fashion previews and thought it suited the feathers and look of a little birdie pretty well. From there I didn't stop. I only draw the birds that come to me; ones I meet personally. I dive into their world and lifestyle and write a little story about them.
I now draw my birds and sew my items in my home studio overlooking a tiny city garden. I have lunch with the blackbird, and hear the jackdaws discuss heavy topics on my studio roof. I get help sewing the luxury pillows as demands became too much to handle on my own.
