About Leftover Universe
Leftovers remind us of the impermanence of life, of all being in transformation. Where one ends another comes alive. This world is full of leftovers and instead of disregarding them Leftover Universe believes in embracing and upgrading them. Radiating heart energy and breathing new life into the lost.
In this Leftover Universe I aim to create sustainable, handmade, soul friendly products that don't harm the self which is the environment. Therefore I like to use natural materials and to up-cycle the old.
Ancient craft techniques are highly valued in a Leftover Universe. Their deep history speak a language of their own and I try to keep them alive by using them in contemporary ways.
'I think we ought to surround ourselves with objects that actually mean something, products that have a story to tell. That way we don't lose our cultural and personal mythologies and we create positive energies in our surroundings. An object made with love and care becomes a talisman and holds the power to make a little part of this world a better place'.
'My works are whimsical, poetic, contemplative and illustrative....each piece has a story to tell. I focus on drawing, painting and translating them onto and into textiles and occassional ceramics . My handmade textiles I then turn into fashion and interior products.'
