about the illustrator.

I was born and raised in a small village north in the Netherlands. Love made me move even further north and I am currently living just outside Oslo, Norway with my partner and cat. On a normal day you can find me at home in my studio making up stories and painting illustrations.

My illustrations are created using watercolours or gouache and the occasional experiment has me combining both and other mediums. I enjoy telling stories through my art and try to create motives that reflect elements of folklore, stories from my childhood but mostly happenings from my day to day life and others. My hope is that it can bring others joy and enlightenment, and make them inspired to look a little closer at the small things in life.

While my love lies in storytelling and illustration I also see the importance of using my creativity in other places. Such things could be gardening, creating art from pickings from the forest, making figures  by using old fabric leftovers or hand stitching journals. I believe for me its important to be creative throughout the day, and staying creative by doing different things.
