A certain style

Visual artist Thea Tolsma (1956) lives in Amsterdam. Thea has a distinct dressing taste. She likes colors and is not afraid to experience with rare combinations. This also applies to the various prints that she combines together.

Kerst toen

Christmas then

I have interviewed Thea previously about her work as a visual artist and jewelry designer. This time I photographed her for the Christmas issue of Zin magazine. Thea: “I think about Christmas, as I experienced it during my childhood, with warm feelings. Through the window of the bedroom door, I saw a reddish glow slowly coming up. It was my mother, who carried a tray with a candle on it and tea with biscuits. She brought this for my sister and me. And we each received a red paper bag with a green ribbon around it, containing tasty stuff we did not get normally; like a mandarin and a piece of chocolate. I really liked this! I myself have no children, but my sister has always done so for her son. ”

Christmas now

“I don’t do much for Christmas now, but I always find it very nice to dress up! During sales, I always succeed very well. Often the clothes, which I really like are still available in the sale. I have a few favourite designers; Issey Miyake is one of them. Today I wear a short jacket and a long coat with this label. My shoes and bag are both designed by Hester van Eeghen. It depends, of course, a bit on the weather, if there is a lot of snow, it will be something else. This combination could well be my Christmas outfit this year.”
