Riet Poch

Riet lives with her husband near the coast in North Germany where she enjoys capturing her memories and feelings in journals and albums. If she isn’t covered in paint and glue she writes stories or photographs the nature outside her door. She started writing her feelings down when she was a child and as a teenager she discovered scrapbooking which helped me to capture memories and combine them with my words. Over the years she began to include more paint and own ideas to my layouts. That reminded her of my dream to make art but she felt like she was not good enough and so never dared to go for it.

With simple techniques we’ll create detailed bases for our message.
