Art in Your Home :: Mirthe Blussé


Art in the home of Mirthe Blussé

A: Art means to me…doing what I love most.

R: Reading books, blogs and magazines…means inspiration. If you ever see someone in a café secretly ripping pages out of a magazine with a pokerface it is probably me..



T: Trends I see in design are…- a growing use of illustration (…but I may be a little biassed here)

A: Artists I admire are.. Hannah Höch, Michel Quarez, Savignac, Steinberg, African sign makers, Hendrik Werkman.

Niets is echt Private paradise Paardje Knuffels Icecream

Niets is echt

N: Never will I say… never.

D: Dreams for my own work are about… editorial illustrations, children’s books, cookbooks, bookcovers, posters.. And I hope to do some more styling projects..

Private paradise
P: Projects I’m currently working on are…editorial illustrators and –finally- setting up my webshop.

R: Relaxing I do… outside in the sun. Preferably in the outdoor swimmingpool nearby. 


I: Interesting art places online are… salon01; wooster collective; grainedit; the selby.

N: New in my home is…a wooden play horse, one of my treasures of the Queen’s Day fleamarket.


T: Tomorrow I like to go to… play with my niece and nephew: the ultimate way to relax and exhaust myself at the same time.

S: Studio, my studio is…my playground.


Mirthe Blussé is an illustrator and graphic designer, who lives and works in Amsterdam. She favors craftsmanship and handmade design. The Ice-cream above comes from her series Good Food that I really love and hope one day she will open her online shop to sell some of these. Mirthe also has a personal blog sharing her latest work… many many nice things you will like!
