Lenie Voortman

My work includes free work as well as applied art. Everything I make, is the result of an ongoing journey of discovery into surprising combinations of techniques and materials. I work with paper and natural fabrics, but also with metals, ceramics and a variety of synthetic materials. I keep discovering new possibilities which I apply in my own way.

For many years, I followed courses ranging from hatmaking to gold- and silversmithing and everything in between. The step towards free work followed the design of unique, individually designed, personal accessories for clients of my image consultancy. I started the consultancy after a career as a medical care counsellor and educator.
