Jan Hilmer's Profile
I am an artist and designer based in Bali Indonesia, and San Francisco, CA. I draw my inspiration from the natural world: sacred geometry, science, bones, metal, leather, and the dark undercurrents of street fashion. Jan Hilmer Designs was birthed in 2005, after years of studying sculpture and of working as a freelance artist and performer in the New York underground scene.
I was drawn to the island of Bali, to a quiet studio, where I could translate my visions into functional timeless designs. I pay special attention to gathering quality materials: leather, silk, hand cast brass and silver, and blending them together into a collection of jackets and jewelry that are made to last. I share a workshop in Bali with designer Monica Wallway, where we handcraft our designs into creations we hope inspire you.
