oh my god, this winter was so long and terrible. But finally it´s spring in Berlin!
as a few of you might now, I am working on a child book charakter. It is a little girl by the name of Emma Rose. The charakter was invented by me a couple of years ago, and is constantly developing. My boyfriend Christian Heymann is writing the stories, while I do the pictures. The newest, and second Emma story is “Emma and the snow trails”. Emma gets lost in the snowy landscape while feeding the birds. But with the help of her little friends, she figures out a way to get back to the house….
this is a new long term project I´m starting. After having illustrated vintage cameras for 2 years, I am starting something else, maybe more ambitious: I´m trying to illustrate famous parfumes, mostly of the old school kind. A good perfume is a “spirit in a bottle”, and can change the aura of the person wearing it.
My first will be “Femme” by Rochas, from the 1940ies. A bull and rich blend, and no way easy, it is for the strong and edgy, but femine ladies, big personalities. Among others it was worn by Hollywood sex icon Mae West, who was far more then a dumb blond. The fragrance has da deep and komplex aura, no one is making such perfumes these days. It reminds me of my grandmas cousin, an extraordinary woman who used to ride motrcycle and who sang at the oparette, with leagons of young suitor at her feet.
read some reviews on it, if you are interessted:

I forgot to make January desktop calenders, but I got reminded by a nice colleague to do it again, so here we go! This time it´s Emma, my little child character I invented, and am writing a book about. You will see more from her later this year. For now, Emma is happy to play outside in the February snow. It´s still cold and winter, but a sense of not too far spring is also in the air. Enjoy the desktops and remember, they are only for your private use.

the year 2011 and beginning of 2012 was the year where something from me was in every single issue of the Dutch magazine Flow. Since late 2012 “Flow International” is out and available in many selected book and magazine stores worldwide. But what is “Flow”?
The magazine was created by 2 Dutch female journalists, Irene and Astrid, 3-4 years ago, and is edited in the huge Dutch publisher house Sanoma. In the beginning not many from the publishers side would trust the project, but at least they gave it a chance. Unexpectedly the magazine project became a success, first in the Netherlands and Belgium, and then all over Europe and even out in the “big wide world”. It was the right product at the right time. I discovered it in late 2010, in a Dutch supermarket. It immediately appealed to me, because it is totally different then what we usually call a woman´s mag. First of all the looks: it uses beautiful eco paper, old school photographs and illustrations, and it has many nice little paper gifts, gimmicks and extras. Then, it totally denies itself to the usual diet-beauty-sex-gossip topics of the typical woman´s mag, but concentrates on really interesting timeless threads, each issue is collectable treasure, and not depending on time context. The mag is suitable for woman and girls from 16 to 86 years, which is really unique on the magazine sector. The first issue of the “Flow International” in English (finally I can read it too!) contains many interesting articles and provides enough serious reading material for weeks, it is an enduring pleasure and will be the favorite accessory on your bed table for weeks, I guarantee. Finally this is no a magazine that you buy on the pass by to browse through, kill time and be forgotten, (and buy the very same mag 1 week later again, because it was so unremarkable stereotype, which happened to me 2-3 times) it´s content has far more substance, yet it is not “heavy” or political, just informative, thoughtful,cultivated and heart warmingly cute. “Flow” loves to showcase interesting (female) biographies too, yet it is not feminist in the first place but female oriented.
order the mag here: http://www.flowmagazine.com/order-flow-magazine/
of course I am more than happy and proud to be featured in the international issue myself, first with a portrait/home story, then with an article about Berlin and my own photos.
Christmas 2011 I even had the honor to produce the Christmas Stamps for the Dutch Royal Post, this was also with the Cooperation of the “Flow” Magazine.
In any case, “Flow” is the right read for the modern, ageless, interested, cultivated, vintage loving woman worldwide.
