I got to admit something : I am a curious person.
Letting my eyes go round in someone’s house or workspace, wandering around in anotherone's world, gives me a crazy energising vibe. I like the cosiness people can bring to the world. I like to catch the vibe of how others see things and live their version of this life.
I love the little things people have lying around. All those tittle talismen' that they treasure, that tell me a lot about who they are. How those small creatures of love do matter, and how I like to read in between lines.

WELCOME TO MY UNIVERSE
Lately I got a lot of questions from clients of what does inspires me? Where I get my crazy objects from for the house, ...
I tough "That's kinda cool. My clients ask me exactly what I am so eager about when other people inspire me". And so the thought of sharing 'my universe' with you all became concrete.

WHAT TO EXPECT
I created some really cool mugs, totes and other objects. Selected art-books of work that inspires, there are leathergoods from designers I admire; products that perfectly matches my esthetics and designs. Piece per piece items I would wear and cherish.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF THE COLLECTION?
"If you steal my energy I will sue you!", and I really mean it!
This earrings are my all-time favorites. They are 'Happy Pill' shaped, asymmetric and playful. This pair with the powerful statement quote in combination with the little pink mule, -with the funny 'made in Hong Kong on the sole'-, really represents who I am. They are perfect for me to wear and combine with all my other dangling naughtiness during weekdays and meetings.
When I go out, I prefer my big earchains with the 'Fuck them all'-hearts.

WHAT GIVES YOU ENERGY / WHAT STEALS IT?
GIVES me energy ; dancing around naked when I am home alone, sketching in the sun with a glass of Sangria on a nice terrace, all things shiny and funny, a date with myself ; meaning that I am visiting a museum and after going for a bite with a lovely magazine or a philosophic book. Playing bass, going to concerts, enjoying life with my friends on my driveway in front of the house, photographing washing lines full of laundry, strolling trough fleamarkets or secondhand stores, cycling rounds around little chapels,..
STEALS my energy ; boxy thinkers, people who correct my typo's in whatsapp knowing that I have dyslexia, administration time, twosteps verifications, left and right with out using the L-trick, clocks, high heels where no sole can assure you you don't have pain after a dancing night.
MINIMALISM IS DEAD
True, I like to live my life to the fullest. Meaning that I like things bold and big and I am not afraid of a quote that tells you the truth.
Also in my job as a creative concept designer, I like to make the impossible possible. You want a postcard in furry leather or eatable bussinesscards? Let's do!
Life is too short to live it a boring way, whatever that means to you. My motto : Always be the playful pony of your own Disneyland, and never settle for less.
