I like starting with a new collection. Normally I’m already bored with what I have done before and I can’t wait starting something new. However, usually I start going through the research folder we make for every collection and take a look at the different stages we went by, while working on the last collection. There are many ideas, concepts, techniques and try-outs which didn’t feel right at that moment, but attract my attention at the present and lead to new concepts and ideas. There I found a picture of the artist Oscar Murillo. I decided to have a closer look at his work and the work of other contemporary painters. Inspired and fascinated by the approach and the intensity of the colours and techniques used, I started working on the prints and textiles.
