Textile love letters - something I’ll send you with thought. 
Through her art practice, Paulien looks for a representation and construction of identity and the perception of femininity, sexuality, love, relationships and psychological tension created by society. Her work is an embodiment of personal narratives, experiences and emotions. By no means the presence of women's position in this society is inevitable but in the end, fundamental feelings like love directly address all of us. 

"I like to think of my works as if they are letters. Because letters provide a more personal and higher form of communication rather than the digital forms we’re used to. They are radical in their own right. More honest, intimate, theatrical and real.
A romantic gesture, something I’ll send you with thought."
