Betty Disco and Miriam van der Linden have been working together as an artist’s duo since 2009. Our collaboration flourishes in a papermaking studio, “De Papiertuin”, located in Velp, the Netherlands. In this studio we transform our own handmade paper into sculptural objects, installations, and wall relief objects.
We make a great variety of paper from imported exotic fibers but also find interesting raw material in the local Woods near the rivers or by the sea.
Working together allows us to share ideas and techniques. It invites us to discuss our artistic impulses with each other, to elaborate motives before we can proceed. Our main common denominator is a love of papermaking and of the natural world. Fortunately challenge that often produces surprising results.
