Visit me at the Wintermarket

From Wednesday until Saturday I'll be at the wintermarket in Soest. They have made a small village in winter-setting, all filled with artists. Welcome!

"Winter of Frost" has started

The frost made its own piece of art this morning, some drops were captured in frost.

A black roof layered with all sorts of things. I like the graphic lines and stillness in this image.

this friday and saturday: winter-sale at the studio

This Friday and Saturday my studio is open to visit. I've made some small paintings for a small price, handmade some little notebooks, made a lot of christmas-cards and well... more to see.
The studio is open from 10-18, I'll put the heat on!

Well, ETSY! The place to by handmade goods worldwide, an online marketplace where artists present and sell their goods, and yes... me too! I've got me own little shoppie:

Some of you might think: oh well, and...? Well, recent results have shown amazing numbers:

•$29.9 million of goods were sold in October, 12.4% higher than September's $26.6 million.
•That represents 1,677,986 items sold for the month, 14.5% higher than September’s 1,466,039.
•2,452,359 new items were listed in the month, 11.6% higher than September's 2,196,970.
•322,466 new members joined the Etsy community in the month, up 41,928, or 14.9%, from September.

currently working on...

I am currently working on some small textile accessories. My workspace is filled with textile, ribbons, buttons and me of course. Enjoying the fanatic sowing on the machine...

Next to being inside the workspace, I also enjoy the autumn colours, while they are still there:

I also have a lot of other things to tell you, upcoming events and so on... to be continued...
