Hi! I am an independent illustrator as well as creative director at Booreiland, based in Amsterdam. I started drawing when I was little and never stopped. Nature, memories, art and culture, animals, and good conversations are big sources of inspiration.
My work is very detailed, drawn mostly with pencil and is always crafted by hand. Clients include VolksHotel, The Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Kids on the moon and Brandt & Levie. I created a hand-drawn animation for De Wereld Draait Door, which was televised live and nationally during prime-time and appeared on VTwonen, making a custom window-drawing.
On several occasions I've collaborated with other creatives, allowing my drawings to leave the paper and even take three-dimensional form, from jewellery to store-windows to children's clothing.
I've illustrated and designed two books, a travel guide and a creative DIY book (which I also wrote). Currently I'm working on my first children's book, an illustrated story about a shy little girl, finding her way into the world. Read more about this one, and the other books here.
As of March 2017, after numerous collaborations and long-time friendship, I've joined digital design agency Booreiland as creative director. I can't imagine a better environment to develop professionally and creatively, while given the space to continue my illustration work. Please check out our brand new website to learn more about my new role and the work we do. www.booreiland.nl
Most of the drawing and creating takes place in our studio in Amsterdam. Above anything else, I seek out creative challenge, meeting of minds and inspiration and welcome requests of any sort.
