headpiece designer, art director, styling

Lisette Appeldorn has a background in fashion-, product- and photography. By merging her experience and knowledge obtained from these specific disciplines she developed her own unique signature/style, captured mainly through the eyes of the camera.

Her spectacular works unleash our imagination and make us all want to wear masks and face covers on a regular basis.

With the use of everyday objects, which form the raw materials in her configurations, quirky characters come to life. That established a peculiar world both fictional and imaginative, yet prevail in a close relation to our direct worldly surroundings. This interrelationship between the elements of reality and fantasy hold up a central role in her work.

When show-casing her works as part of the Playgrounds Eye Candy series, editor Simon Buijs mentioned: “Lisette makes beautiful masks, well crafted and humorous, that simply mesmerise. Her work was on the cover of the GUP Magazine (2019), was exhibited during the Haute Talent Photography (2019), Het Nieuwe Instituut (2020), De School (solo 2020) and sold out her work during the Foam First Editions (2019).”
