After years of working in the garment industry, setting up my own clothing labels, I took a textile retreat, away from the fast lane of fashion.
My meetings with long forgotten textile makers and methods on my journey around the world resulted in the book OUT OF FASHION | THE NEW FASHION.
It however also inspired me to go slow and create a collection of mini collages and assemblages from textile treasures: DRESSING THE SOUL.
I am very pleased my Art works and Book will be on view in a Solo Show from 23.04.17 until 13.05.17
Your invited for the opening 23.04.17 | 15.00-17.00 at Art Gallery Francis Boeske Projects Ms. van Riemsdijkweg 41A, Amsterdam
A wonderful start for my book OUT OF FASHION | THE NEW FASHION. Textile View Magazine (issue 117) featured it with 8 full color pages.
Publisher and editor David Shah calls the 412 page book “A prayer book to textiles”.
The book is 59 euro and if you like to order the book go to the shop. We ship international.
The 7th edition of Happinez International is out and my Japanese Hanami Matsuri spring blossoms are selected as photo-opening. This International issue can be found from New Zealand to Bahrain to Columbia in over thirty countries.
‘Melting the ice in the heart of man’ that is the mission of Inuit shaman Angaangaq. The first time I met him is more than 15 years ago in New York, after that our paths crossed a few more times on different places in the world. He changes the energy wherever he goes when he ‘sings’ with his qilaut (drum). I had the privilege to travel with him to his home country Greenland. The article and story were first published in the Dutch issue of Happinez in 2012. Very pleased to find it now translated and published in the French Happinez as well.
Published in the Dutch Issue of Happinez 8 | 2016
My journey with Marianne Tuerlings from Shirdak | Amsterdam to Kyrgysztan , first published in the May 2013 issue of the Dutch Happinez, is now also published in the International English and French issue of Happinez.
