Eline Van der Straeten

My name is Eline Van der Straeten. From September 2016 until the beginning of February 2017 registered as an exchange student at Miverva Art Academy, part of the Hanze University Of Applied Sciences in Groningen, The Netherlands.

I started studying Arts in Ghent (Belgium) in 2012 where I could handle very freely with all kinds of arts and techniques. It was love at first sight.
Later on I wanted to use my skills in a more technical study. In 2014 I chose the direction Interior Design at KASK School Of Arts in Ghent. I learned many technical skills. Going from computer skills, to present, to material knowledge.
But I felt more freedom when I created objects in the studio, preferably without a computer. Because I want to work with my hands.
In my study as an Interior Designer, I chose to focus on furniture design. I realized this direction suits me more.
In 2016 I wanted to push my limits by studying Product Design in the Netherlands.
Because of this I got a lot of new impressions and I could develop my own style
