I'm a textile artist with a passion for felt.


Growing up around my mother's sewing studio resulted in a fashion education, but art has always fascinated me.
Not only have I done several textile design courses but I've been painting for several years at the Hageland Academy of Fine Arts.

After a period of illness in 2017, I decided to pursue my love for felt and design.

I strive to work with local shepherds as suppliers of wool, and nature becomes my supplier of inspiration and dyes.

Everything is felted in the traditional way, sometimes combined with the modern knowledge of textile design.  
Felt is pleasant, sound absorbing ( acoustic ) and brings a soft atmosphere to any interior.

My design process is sustainable, and is kept as ecologically responsible as possible.

The wool only comes from sheep that were shaved, not killed!

MdMN stands for Maison du Mouton Noir.

A black sheep is special, remarkable and a-typical. Furthermore, as the Scottish tradition wants, a black sheep brings good luck.

My studio is located in Belgium and every design is made in-house.
