I work on my portfolio year-round, adding new designs and sometimes taking things out before they are sold. The rule is that it must fit in one suitcase – but it’s a big suitcase… All the patterns are developed from scratch, and every series is made using a different industrial technique. The scale of the patterns can vary, but there is always a digital file with it, in the repeat that is suited for the clients’ specifications. And if wanted, I can advise the client about how to produce my designs or where to have them produced.
I take my suitcase to the fairs where I show, most importantly Heimtextil Frankfurt, and on my trips to clients throughout Europe and the United States. Clients are also invited, however, to come to my studio in the Netherlands, where they may see some work that is still developing.
