I started my career as a fashion designer, designing several collections for different target groups at different companies. From concept to technical drawings, from color card to collection book.
Dutch kitchen textiles
The next step was working as an illustrator & print designer on a freelance basis. I did some really nice projects for clients in the fashion industry, for packaging projects and for lifestyle products. Next to that I started my own label in kitchen textiles: Commis de Cuisine, 99% tailor & locally made in the Netherlands! I’ve learned so much during this period, but to do it all by myself… In the end it just wasn’t for me!
Back to school
So, with my newly learned skills, endless enthusiasm and energy, I now work as a designer and study to learn more about health & care (I started a study Bachelor Nursing in 2019 and made a switch to a Masters degree in cross-over creativity). In the near future I will be able to combine health care & creative design in one job!
In the meantime: I really, really like swimming (long distance, get out of my way!), stand up paddle boarding and surfing (yes, you can in the Netherlands, also in the winter months), and travel around with our vintage Kip trailer (please have a look on our Pulled-Chicken-Travels Instagram account, you’ll like it).
