Jossy de Roode-van der Lee was born in Surabaja, then Dutch East Indies. Jan first saw the light of day in Vlaardingen in the Netherlands. Both born in the Sumatrastraat but on another continent. Jossy came with her parents in 1950 to Rotterdam, the city where Jan lived too. Jossy had a song career in the popgroup The Familee with her three brothers and two sisters. 13 years of appearances in home and abroad.

Jossy juli 2016After his period of military service, Jan started in the advertising business and started up his own advertising office “Goodwill”. After selling Goodwill he continued a more specialistic sales promotion company Jan de Roode Promotions Ltd.
Jossy and Jan married and worked together in their business ‘Jan de Roode Promotions’ in Rotterdam. When their four children had left the home Jan and Jossy moved to remote Burgh Haamstede in the province of Zeeland.
Because of the hectic of the business not much time was left for creativity. Therefore after a few years Jossy left the company to start something completely different. She received a four-year training in paint technique at the Isard Academy in Antwerp, Belgium. Started teaching modelling in clay and painting in her garden atelier as well as at the Peoples University in Middelburg.
She organized exhibitions and shows, wrote some books and articles for several hobby- garden- and magazines on interiordesign.

But the whole situation changed when she discovered the possibilities of Paverpol shaping polymer which makes all sorts of textiles and fabrics rockhard and even waterproof.
Jossy developed a technique accessible to many hobbyists. Her designs became rapidly known in certain circles. Again also in several magazines.
Artists also used her technique and let themselves be inspired by them. She loves to share her knowledge and experience in several workshops in nearby all the European countries, but also in America, Canada, Mexico, Russia, French Guyana, Surinam, Australia and so on.

Partly due to husband Jan who sold the sales promotion company and handled the marketing and logistic. Paverpol International was born! The commercial part Paverpol International is sold in 2014 and Jossy and Jan develop new pieces of work for the new owners of Paverpol International. Now Jossy and Jan travel around the world to share and promote art and creativity with many others in Paverpol workshops and trainings.
