They love what they do!

This is Tine Steen, a Berlin artist with danish roots and me at my Inspirational Breakfast at Benedict-Berlin ( more at

We look so happy because we´re talking about stuff we love.


You won´t believe how many years it took her to really start doing what she always wanted to do in her life and embrace her love for knitting and crocheting.

For so many years all such handicrafts have been considered as minor arts.
And so, wanting to be a serious artist she concentrated on painting portraits. But whenever she had some spare time, she was knitting and crocheting as much as she could.

Today she is doing some very exciting art with those wellknown technics. She found a way to express herself in a very edgy and special way, which I find extremely inspiring! Find out more at




Tine is also doing projects to help refugees in Berlin and this are some pictures from that:




Just this weekend I visited the Textile Art Berlin and here are my two favourite artists:

Gudrun Leitner, who is by the way also doing some little workshops about her sewing technics in Berlin, more at





And here are the artworks of Stefanie Gruber. She started with her intruiging picures only a few years ago.

A Life of Creativity

A Life of Creativity

A Life of Creativity

Sometimes in life you just follow your intuition.

You just see something and know, you have to go there, or you have to do it. And you can´t explain why, it just feels right and important.

That´s what happened to me, when I saw the textile works and carpets of the renown british artist John Allen. I fell in love with his use of colours, his way of seeing things and expressing it.




So I spontaneously contacted him and found out about the art teachings he was giving. And when I joined his classes in London, he also turned out to be an extraordinary teacher. He has a very open mind, always ready to reconsider his own opinion.

I´m very proud to show you some pictures of my visit at his lovely victorian house in London, where everything breathes pattern and textures. Every inch is packed with beautiful and exquisit pieces of 20th century art. John created a very tasteful, colourful and joyful home, where you can wander around and discover extraordinary paintings on the walls and dozens of vases and wooden sculptures.


In a whole, the story of his life is so colourful as his home. He designed fabrics for Dior and Balenciaga, he set up the knitting school in the Royal College of Art, he designed for LOEWE and JW Anderson and much much more. In our interview he talks about his creative life and reveals interesting insights about the fashion industry. He also shares some precious advice for what it takes to be successful and follow through not only as an artist.
