About the work
De serie Inbox bestaat uit een serie ‘boxjes’ waarin een collage is gemaakt. De materialen zijn op basis van hergebruik en/of oude tijdschriften. Door één en ander te combineren ontstaat er een wat surreëel nieuw beeld wat verrast.

About the artist
I am self-taught. I discovered my creativity through correspondence with an artist in Germany. We wrote to each other in fable form. We added small objects to the letters, which became bigger and bigger. They became collages in which we took utensils out of context and put them together in an unexpected way. This led to a series of successful exhibitions in the Netherlands and Germany in the 1990s. In my portfolio is the list of all the assignments I have done afterwards.
I make light-footed design with a nod to reality. I do this still by taking materials out of context and combining them in an unexpected way. This resulted in the redesign collaboration (furniture & lamps), in a series of collages and objects. I also use my creativity for social projects. For example, a shop window project in a deprived neighborhood and at a project for the probation service. At one point I also started writing short stories that I published in my book Fifty! and later in my online magazine Marga's Magazine.
I have had various exhibitions, sold my redesign in local shops and carried out a series of social projects for the municipality in particular.
