What shall I tell you about me?! I am Joana, 33, I live in a town called Rheda-Wiedenbrück, which is in the Midwest of Germany. It is really the Middle West, very rural with lots of cows, sheeps and tractors.
I love everything you can do with photos & paper: collages, hand lettering or foldings – I even love just the haptic of paper. What else? I love postcards and handpicked stories. Surprise me with a little anecdote of the everyday life. Combined with a picture on the back and a nice stamp up in the right corner. Sounds perfect to me! By the way I love everything from before the 1960s. e.g. snapshots of everyday life, adverts or movies, science & botanical sketches, comics, pin-up. Oh I am a fan of inappropriate, tasteless and stupid postcards, which make me smile. At this point I have to admit that I am really not a fan of touristic postcards, especially if they only show monuments or buildings. Sorry.
Because I spend far too many hours in front of the screen, I enjoy going for a run in the countryside. I have a small dog, called Pippa. It's a typical German sausage dog (wired hair dachshund). She is pretty good in keeping me busy with all her crazy ideas.
Well, I often find myself sitting somewhere looking into the sky. Far too many things up there, which attract my attention: clouds, stars, birds or drones. The endless sky. Oh - I am pretty good in getting lost in my thoughts, too. By the way I love squirrels, bumble bees and woodpeckers.
If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine, Sarah Winman meets Zadie Smith for a coffee and from time to time people like Chris Ware, Erich Kästner and Max Frisch joining the conversation. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and i have a weak spot for magazines. I cant leave the newsagent without buying the new issue of frankie or Little White Lies.
Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema. You wonder what I have seen recently? United Kingdom…Favorite movies?! Charlie Chaplin–The Kid, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, Once, Zootopia and La La Land.
Well, I hope I could give you a foggy hint about myself. I am looking forward to hearing from you and even more to getting to know you. Smiles, Joana
