From her studio, a historic warehouse at Hembrug Zaandam, Tjimkje runs both Studio Tjimkje and Foamo.

Evidenced by the broad product range, Tjimkje derives inspiration for new work often from day-to-day scenes. And however meaningless these observations may seem, by tilting reality or twisting the context just a little… The common becomes extraordinary, Asian mountaintops become monumental lighting objects, buttons transform into a chair, and a classical painting inspires to create Picturesque Mirrors. It is exactly these twists of the world we know that characterize Tjimkje’s work.
