Collaborating with others is always a fun challenge and a very effective way of learning new ways of working and new skills. So far I had the pleasure to collaborate with a few designers, studios and brands, and I am looking forward to the future ones! Email me if you feel like we could do something together at:

Ane&Ivar portraits and stories

During our ongoing trip for three months around Japan Ivar and me have started taking portraits of people that have inspired us in many ways. It’s still developing and will be launched soon!

From the beginning of our relationship we were wondering how to collaborate creatively and we found our way with this series of portraits. He takes the photo, then we print it and I paint over it capturing different aspects of the person.

Mundaka BC by Ane Baztarrika

This collaboration is very special to me as it comes from the Basque Country where my roots and family are. Mundaka BC is a trademark of Basque fashion that not only has its own collections but also special collaborations with designers. They just launched our collaboration and I really am proud to be part of their project!

Azuma Bukuro bags sewn by Inge, painted by Ane

Inge and me have a creative love story. We met last year and we had an instant connection, we both share an obsession with Japanese patterns and textiles and are very passionate on trying new techniques. First I helped her to run a shibori workshop at Camera Japan festival and then she helped me on my workshop with natural dyes at biobodega. Apart from that we have met several times to learn and try techniques, and also developed this hand painted series of Azuma Bukuro bags (japanese bento box bags).
