Hi, I'm Els
I've been exploring the arts for as long as I can remember.
It started as a teenager in the School for Fine Arts in Noord-Limburg and was followed in the Provincial Institute for Art Education in Hasselt. Eventually I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Louvain, majoring in photography, publicity and graphic design.
A professional art career wasn't meant to be but the urge to create remained. Now and then I took a course to master a certain basic technique. That's how I discovered felting about eleven years ago. Where photography and graphic design were mostly black and white, felting allowed me to add some color to my work. I'm still bursting with ideas and I often find inspiration in the little things. I also find it fascinating to give certain objects a new purpose through felting.
I hope the pictures on this site will show you what I mean. At the bottom of the page you can find an overview of where my work will be on display. Feel free to leave a message in my Guestbook or contact me by email.
