Previous projects

A Maximalist is known to do a lot. Here an overview.

These are the works of a fashion designer with a focus on textile and print design, with a strong interest in social design.

 These works do not come from perfectionism, moreover, they come from the opposite. As a maker I use what is given. Might it be a mistake or not, nothing is wasted and all is fuel for new experiment.

Preferably working mixing analog and digital techniques, the works are never to be predicted. What fun is it, to create something that you already know what it will look like!
