social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

take-a-word: blue

another spread in a "stuff collecting journal":
i took an old blue shirt for background.
the flap on the right is colored with pan pastels and a dylusions stencil. 
below you see the three pockets to hold stuff.

onto the backside i glued an old map (from a merian magazine),
pockets may be added.


  1. I do like your use of fabric and I love little pockets, very nice work.

  2. Such a creative spread with lots of blues! Wonderful! xx

  3. wow very creative, beautiful!
