"Inspired by Monet" is a new series of silk scarves inspired by Monet's paintings. The collection of the famous French impressionist Claude Monet is very colorful and therefore really appeals to me. For this series I was mainly inspired by his paintings with flowers.
A client in Utrecht (The Netherlands) recently assigned me to design curtains. The first step was to take the atmosphere and colours of the existing interior as a starting point. Combined with the client’s wishes, this formed the groundwork for a number of designs made on the computer.
