What about these for a present?

Entering the Bernard-Massard competition last months gave me some new ideas and I would love some feedback from you! šŸ˜Š - Would you buy a giftbox for wine? - Would you prefer a cheaper price with no exclusivity or would you prefer a limited edition so that they are more special, considering the price would be (quiet a bit) higher when they are limited edition. - What would you pay for a box like this? Maximum & minimum price? - Would you prefer buying the wine yourself or would you like a box that has a bottle in it? - If you want the wine included, would you like a budget wine or a more exclusive wine? - Would you prefer buying a box in my webshop or in a shop that sells wine? You would help me a lot by answering one or more of these questions (in English or Dutch)! Thanks in advance!

Gift boxes for the end of year?

Unfortunately I din’t win the Bernard-Massard contest but it did give me another idea. I’m thinking about designing a series of gift boxes for the end of year and sell them through a selection of quality wine stores & webshops. In the video on the left you can see two proto-types.

I’ll be working out a business plan in summer andĀ if things look good I’ll hope to start producing inĀ September. Want to keep informed? Subscribe to my mailinglist! If you own a wine store and are interested in selling the boxes, feel free to send me an e-mail.

A big thank you to everybody who liked & shared the contest! <3

On May 11th, I made a painting and told my vision behind it on a stage in front of +100 people during the kick-off event ofĀ Federatie Kinderopvang.

A few weeks beforeĀ a friend asked me why I didnā€™t do live videoā€™s while I was painting or drawing. I told her that I didnā€™t like it when people saw my work in an early stage because it can be quit messy and Iā€™m a perfectionist who only likes the end result. Besides this Iā€™ve never felt comfortable with people looking over my shoulder when I’m working. I surprised myself when I said yes to this assignment. ;)

Quite a big move out of my comfort zone but differently worth it!Ā

Some of my printsĀ can nowĀ be seen in theĀ Home.made.stories,

What’s coming?

I’ll be re-arranging my webshop in the following weeks. I’ll take out 50 of the 100 days prints because it’s just to muchĀ and addĀ some originalĀ paintings. The option to order a different color print will also be removed. If you want this option just send me an e-mail! :)

BesidesĀ this I’ll be working on some new small paintings which will be for sale in summer.

And maybe a collection of small golden illustrations in a limited edition, and the wine boxes of course, and, …, Ā whiiieeeeeh! I’ve got more ideasĀ then daysĀ in a year and I’ve been known for changing my plans so we’ll see! ;)

Have a great day or night!
