My name is Juul de Bruijn, I studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven at the department “man & mobility”. I like to work hard, I am open minded, enthousiastic and positive. I look at every assignment as a new beginning and I always try to make the best out of it.

 

When I was a child, I loved to work with my hands, which I still do. My parents have always supported me in this, there was always enough material to work with.

I loved to play by myself in the garden or the attic. I created different fantasy worlds and I could entertain myself for hours like that.

When I became older I still liked to play. I played with my classmates. It are those kind of games which parents could not attend with. The whole story we played, was based on our fantasy. It was amazing to just go with that feeling, not thinking about yesterday or about tomorrow.

If I think back about this time I remember the wonderful feeling of losing yourself in fantasy. Unfortunately a lot of people lose this when they grow up.

In my work I show my own fantasy and combine it with working with my hands. In this way, I would like to recall adults to their inner fantasy.
