InspirationAnnemie Koenen teaches in her own Woolworkshop Moeder Aarde (1999) and since 2008 predominantly international. Annemie's knowledge in the field of feltmaking is broad and deep, as is her course offer, with an emphasis on quality felt.
She is inspired by nature and cultures from far away countries and she made many trips to Central Asia, the cradle of felt. She predominantly works with her own dyed wool and silk and with recycling materials.
Her artistry finds its shape in many latent ideas that become a reality on a certain moment or come her way. She loves to be lead by circumstances, that are both a limitation and a challenge.
Her accesories and wall decorations can be found at different places in the country and since 2017 also in her gallery: Creations in felt.
When she works on assignment her goal is to get the image of the customer as clear as possible in order to create the work, in dialogue, appropriate in its environment.
