About me

I'm a freelance textile designer and live in Gent (Belgium) with my husband and son. I divide my time between teaching, social design projects and writing for the Dutch magazine Textielplus. I'm always open to new collaborations, so feel free to get in touch!


My mission

To promote digital textile printing as an affordable,
flexible and environmentally friendly alternative
to other commercial printing methods.
To guide, inspire and promote emerging design talent.
To bridge the digital design skills gap.




'Dankzij de cursussen die ik bij Manel volgde, rijpte bij mij het idee om professioneel print designer te worden. Wat mij echt dat extra duwtje gaf? Het enorme vertrouwen dat Olu in haar begeleiding meegeeft.Geen vraag is teveel, altijd staat ze voor je klaar!'
