About:


Billie van Katwijk is fascinated by nature; alive and dead, in all its purity and imperfections. As a result of her love for animals and nature, she tries to highlight the beauty she sees in them. Often she does this by (re)using natural forms, colours and materials. In her work, materials, tactility and colour are important themes.
Van Katwijk believes in showing contradictions andaboos, but avoids judging them.
That’s whyher approach is unconventional, discussing existingrules, habits and dogmas and leaves the beaten track, 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.”
