Take a look in- and outside my art studio!
I am a Surface Pattern Designer, based in the South of The Netherlands. I love drinking lattes, quiet living and everything green. We live in a quiet rural village and from my studio window I can see the cows and the sheep grazing in the green meadows close to the river. Every day I take walks with our Golden Doodle dog Doerak who sometimes assists me with painting. Nature, gardens and traveling gives me great inspiration to hand-paint vibrant florals, fruits, vegetables, shapes and geometrics in my favorite art medium, Daniël Smith watercolor paint. I work in collections and also stand alone beautiful hero patterns. Sometimes collections are connected by theme, some by color or season. I also enjoy experimenting with different styles and techniques to push the boundaries of traditional surface design.

hi, I'm cindy

Letting nature into our homes and gardens by the patterns I design, gives people a warm and welcome feeling. 
That is my goal in life.
I am also a wife and a mother and a fulltime business owner.
As a child I was always drawing and being creative. My dream was attending The Art Academy, but that was not allowed back then. Instead of that, I went to The Hotel Academy and sometimes you can see that in my designs inspired by delicious food.

When our two sons grew older I took tailor classes, but I noticed that I was always drawn to the design of the fabric.
I came across SPD and took several intensive courses and art classes for three years. I learned Surface Pattern Design from Rachelle owner of Pattern and Design in Melbourne, Australia.
Wether you need a custom print for your fashion line or are looking to add some personality to your home decor products, I am confident that I can deliver designs that will exceed your expectations.

From inspiration to design

 Take a look in my art studio! I am a Surface Pattern Designer, based in the South of The Netherlands. I love drinking lattes, quiet living and everything green. Enjoying nature and gardens and travelling gives me great inspiration to handpaint vibrant florals, fruits, vegetables, shapes and geometrics in my favorite art medium, Daniël Smith watercolor paint. I work in collections and also just beautifull hero patterns on their own. Sometimes collections are connected by theme, some by color or season.
