Contemporary Needlework Birds by Jurianne Matter
We’ve been fortunate enough to call Dutch designer Jurianne Matter our friend for many years. She is one of those all round talented visual artists that inspires us with every collection. Whether it is her first love, paper, or any other medium. Anything Jurianne touches turns into delicate pieces of art. So when we asked her to create some ‘Spring Needlework’ templates for Issue 4, we trusted they would be magnificent. And boy, did they make our embroidery loving hearts go faster.
We took a peek behind the scenes in her stylish home in the green heart of The Netherlands. Those of you familiar with Jurianne‘s instagram stories are often treated to an early morning walk in the scenic nature park she calls her backyard.
As a self called late bloomer, Jurianne pursued her artistic dream after a career as a stylist. Initially focussing on paper and stationer accessories, but now her creations include ceramics and textile designs. You find her work in gift stores and design shops around the world. And closer to home, even in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
