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 2020 this resulted in a collaboration with Carine Beelen LAPB.NL.
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
