tidy up art

There's a trend going on: designers try to get hold of life by mapping social behaviour, everyday life or even emotions in graphic statistics.
Swiss artist Ursus Wehrly is doing the same with daily materials and scenes. I am intrigued by this concept: simplifiying the world, making it well-ordered like a Swiss watch. Must be my Matterhorn roots!

pinterest pill

Recovering from a nasty flu I gave myself a Pinterest-treatment today. Hadn't been on Pinterest since July and I must say: it works seeing beautiful photo's, I feel much better today!
Since I stayed in bed practically the whole week, I was very much focussed on photo's of bedrooms ;-)

You can find these pics (and track down the source) on my Pinterest boards. Have a lovely Sunday!

off to Paris

this is the april/paris page from the lovely new 2013 calender by Rifle paper

Tomorrow morning I'll leave for Paris for a couple of days - Maison & Objet trade fair -  together with my collegue/friend Gemma Broekhuis from Milestone Babycards. Promoting my Circles (which means folding and talking at the same time - both of my 'talents' combined!!), looking at the latest trends, meeting business associates and hoping to find a distributor for the USA!
I am looking for a good (matching!) distributor that represents my work in the US, that attends fairs and takes care of the logistics etc. I would be so happy with that. There's a pile of US-orders waiting for them already...If you have any ideas/advice concerning this, please do contact me!

Planning to go to Paris too? I would love to meet you! I'll be mostly at the booth of  
&K Amsterdam - hal 6, L86, who is my distributor for Europe.
Au revoir!
