Designer and Keecie founder
‘Wherever I go, I always have a notebook and a fine pen with me, as every Keecie design starts with a sketch. Nature is a great source of inspiration for me.
I can endlessly watch birds, plants and leaves. I don’t necessarily have to leave the city for this – I also look for nature in Amsterdam. Meanwhile, the photos I end up taking may just lead to a print in a bag. Like the photo I took from our hotel window in Turkey.
I immediately noticed that the leaf of the Jacaranda tree would make a nice print. You can see it on the inside of the iPhone cover Hide & Seek. As it happens, I often get ideas for prints on vacation. I do much more drawing because I simply have more time. And no, it doesn’t feel like I’m working during the holidays! Drawing is relaxation for me.’
