Hi, I am Renate van Lamsweerde. 
A Dutch artist and art historian dedicating my life to exploring different forms of art. The art of ceramics, photography, design, drawing and also culinary cultures. Born in The Hague, the Netherlands, I grew up in a house where art was a way of living, with Italian roots that inspired my love for beauty and art.  

After my studies I was living in Florence, Italy, but when my father got terminally ill I returned to the Netherlands, I became a mother to two sons and worked for the Museum of Literature and Children's Books. It was in 2018 during the first trip to Marrakech, Morocco, that I discovered my love for the country's history and artistic traditions. And accepted my creative mind of being.

Today you can find me in Marrakech or in The Hague. I work with Moroccan artisans, am inspired by the Amazigh (Berber) culture and  Marrakshi's ..and in full admiration of their traditions, skills and humor.

Working together, for me, is a testament to the power of art to inspire, transform, and connect people across cultures and continents.

my Project

Setting up a
•RvL• production line of ceramics, and accessories like tablecloths, and napkins, napkin-rings to scented candles, Berber carpets, earrings, little pouches and clothing..

my Mission

To create a workspace for young and old moroccan artisans, keeping the knowledge and tradition, the skills and creativity and last but not least the moroccan humor alive

my Photography

I can stop time for just a moment with photography ...and enjoy the stillness of that moment written by light.

I hope they will make you dream or fantasize and embrace that moment of timeless thought..
