Something about me.
I like to look at myself and the people around me with a sense of humor.
And I find it inspiring to create new designs by using discarded materials.
As to styles I like all kinds of different styles in clothing and art, especially if they are quirky and bright.
After graduating as a fashion designer at the academy of Arts I was introduced into the world of theatre.
My love for that world of fantasy sparked off, and that's why I have enjoyed working as a costume designer for more than twenty five years.
I also got the opportunity to work several years as a project manager at "De Modestraat" in Amsterdam Noord.
Here I enjoyed leading groups of refugees.
By making clothes they could work on their personal growth and integration, we learned so much from each other.
Besides this work I participate in "The Summer of Arts" where the tower of Monickendam is my work space.
In 2021 this resulted in a collaboration with Carine Beelen Mrs.Green Lab
We processed discarded textiles with natural dyes and other techniques, from which wall hangings and other objects were created.
In 2021 we exhibited at Fuse-NDSM, a large installation with canvases processed with rust technique, that create a beautiful landscape.
I am currently participating in the new exhibition at Fuse "Odyssee", this time with a special collage art work.
I am always enthusiastic and open for future projects, and if you need more information please send me a message.
Best regards, Regina
