Die Drache und der Wind

Remember summer, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

A perfect place to rest and share stories with dear witches and smoke.
Memories like straw spun to gold.

Be serious in a Pipi Longstocking way,
sail the seas, surrender to waves and wind, wave to the women on the island with the apple trees. Cast the anchor and return home. Sit by the fireplace in the little wood house.
Let the thoughts of happy times fill my heart.
Warm feelings follow.

For the love of Molly

Sleepy me, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

No, it's not me with a hangover from celebrate Bloomsday in Dublin.
What I sure would have loved to do today ;)
To me Molly Blooms chapter in the Ullysses is my favorite tekst ever written. A girl close to my heart.

Mmh, yes, I want to share deep thoughts in my blog about the world, love and peace, art, my spirituality. Instead I only share small bits of my art and life. Nothing special.
Makes me feel boring. That's the way it is.
Just a litlle dreamer.

Mmh, yes, just let me take the seedcake back from his mouth.
and yes I said yes I will Yes!

Walter van Beirendonck

Walter van Beirendonck, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

My favorite belgian fashion designer since somewhere in the eighties.
I fel in love with his knitted mens sweaters in a girls magazine.
His work is so playful and fun.

Visited his shop in Antwerpen, it was the best shop I have ever been in. Like a fairyland. And like in a fairyland I did not had the money to take something home with me, so I got out save ;)
Joking, I love to be enchanted by this guy.

Meanwhile I'm busy cutting the cutest fabrics my money could buy. Sewing them together, iron them.

And let my magic start :)


Happy fabric, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

Last week I bought this retro fabric on the market for 1 euro per meter. It just made me happy. As I was browsing my Walter van Beirendonck book, I saw it being used in his Revolution show winter 2001-02.

That's the little things in life I love.
Just pay attention.

Focus Maastricht

Focus Maastricht, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

My work "Granny dreams" is on show in Atelierhouse Aachen.
Focus Maastricht shows works from artist from Maastricht and Heerlen.
Painting, video, photo and installations.

The atelierhouse has a good vibe to it, it was a cool show with works from twelve artists. Really good was it to meet some of my best classmates from school. Felt good to be seen as a artist for a few hours ;)

Check out the sites from my friends: Janna Navis and Paul Caron on their site are also the works of the cutest couple from school; Sandra Hanckman and Patrick Bolk. My college artist from Heerlen, Erick van Heugten, busy talking as always, on the photo.
And mysterious photos from David Bowie lover Hanneke van Dongen.
