About

I am a yellow lunar warrior and I live in both worlds, the light and the dark.

I have a passion for making clothes, a skill I've inherited from my grandma. When I was little we made clothes for my dolls. Suddenly many years later I got an idea in my head. 'What if I could make the clothes myself that I really want to wear?' So I went buying some fabrics and began to sew the pieces of fabric together. My mother insisted to do things according to the book, so I did. But that way never worked for me. I kept having the same feeling that something was missing and there could be done so much more.

I'm a creative soul, so besides sewing I also like to draw. This was the reason I've studied graphic design of which I've learned a lot. I like to write things down in very symbolic language. For me, both of the above are ways of clearing my head like some creative meditation.

Being surround by nature has also a meditative effect. A lot of my inspiration comes from there, like flowers, birds, rainbows, mushrooms or Mother Nature's beautiful colours.

I'm interested in the philosophical ideas of our existence, going way back to the old civilisations such as the maya's, the aztecs and the egyptians. I'm also trying to be aware of the spiritual evolution of one's self, like reaching a state of trance by dancing for instance.


I've set up a facebook page so followers can enjoy giveaways. But it's also for inspiration, more about me and my work, and everything else I'd like to share;
