The last few weeks I have been working on paper dresses; this october I have to present three new ones during an exhibition. Now I am home and not working on my dresses and there is always a sense of guilt when I’m not in my studio. But to be honest: I like to stay home when I am in the middle of a working process. People may think I should go to my studio to make sketches and preparations. But I like my images to linger in my mind so I can give them time to mature and still have the possibility to make changes. I hardly make sketches. I make them in my head, during reading, watching television, eating, sleeping etc. Sometimes I write down my findings: in a little notebook or in a blog as I am doing right now.
I can linger in my mind while I am sitting or lying in my bed or floating through the air
