Drawing is in my blood. For as long as I can remember, I have been drawing. I never had a novel hidden under my bed, as that place was occupied by a sketchbook and a pencil.
After graduating from the academy for Art and Design in ’s-Hertogenbosch (The Netherlands), I started as a graphic designer and worked for a large variety of customers. I really enjoyed designing logos, corporate identities, books and posters. Throughout the years, I discovered that I enjoy designing books and making illustrations the best. It comes straight from my heart.
My illustrations have a story to tell and reflect a mood. They invoke questions and show that not everything is what it seems. My favorite materials are watercolor, gouache, pens and pencils. I work from home where I have a studio in the attic. I live with my husband and two teenage daughters in Rosmalen (The Netherlands).
