I am Billie, I am a designer.

I am fascinated by nature; alive and dead, in all its purity and imperfections. As a result of my love for animals and nature, I try to highlight the beauty I see in them. Often I do this by the (re)use of natural forms, colours and materials. In my work, materials, tactility and colour are important themes. I believe in showing contradictions and taboos, without judgement.

That’s why I use an unconventional approach, discussing existing rules, habits and dogma’s and tread off the beaten track in trying to create something new. I want to add value by making unconventional choices, getting people to think and inspire. My concepts are completed by the user, with his or her own thoughts.
