About me

Gender FEMALE
Introduction I was born and raised just outside of Antwerp, Belgium. The nuns at the Catholic school I attended until age 18 still believed that sewing and needlework were good skills for a girl to know (and I agree), in addition to Latin, Greek and science. This great academic education was followed by 4 years of pure creative madness at the fashion department of Royal Academy of Fine Arts. While I never actually worked as a fashion designer (maybe one day), I did work for a long time in the world of trend forecasting, both in Paris and New York. Then the world of home furnishings and interior design beckoned. I have always loved being part of a creative work environment. Once I had children, I realized I very much wanted that creativity around them at home as well. So whenever and wherever I was able to do so, I have always had some sort of craft project going on. I am further inspired by my very regular trips to flea markets, thrift stores and art supply places, where I always find ideas and inspiration for my next project.
