What has been the highlight of your career so far?
My highlight is not so much a publication or a special exhibition, it’s more the fact that I can do this full time and I can plan my own time. Besides this, my collaboration with The Souks was something I’ll never forget. Together with Emma Peijnenburg I designed a special handmade pillow/blanket collection for the Amsterdam-based label. The journey to Morocco with the three of us was magical. I am also very excited for my upcoming exhibition at the Hoxton Hotel later this year.
Were you creative when you were growing up?
Yes, I have always been the creative kid…. drawing, painting, making collages, pottery etc.
Is Fedja currently showing any signs of inheriting your creative genes?
At the moment, he is too young to express this. He did make a couple of ‘drawings’ with pencil and one with paint. He likes it and his work is very abstract.
