I am a digital illustrator from the Netherlands, specialized in character design, doodle art and everything kawaii!
I love to give life to all sorts of cute characters. My artwork is inspired by pop culture and Japanese illustrations. I’ve always been fond of cute characters. To be honest, I am one of those people who fall for cute and fancy packaging in the supermarket.
I choose to be a digital artist because I think we all have our responsibility to do our part in saving the planet. When I draw digitally, I don’t have to use any paper and that makes happy trees!
Another advantage is that drawing digitally also makes for a faster creation process. It’s easier to go from sketching to inking without having to digitize your artwork first.
I started my journey as a creative kid with a drawing talent…
But at a certain point, the big bad grown-ups told me it’s better to pursue a career in IT because they thought my life would be a lot easier compared to life as an artist. Little did they know…
After 10+ years in IT and after having my second burn-out I decided IT wasn’t for me. I quit my job and became an artist. I had a lot of catching up to do and the years that followed I think I’ve tried every style and every medium, from watercolor painting to digital drawing and from cartooning to realistic portraits.
And over time I developed my personal style: cute, whimsical characters and doodles!
With a background in IT, (web)design, UX/UI and data visualization I know exactly how my illustrations can be used for business
I am available for commercial, editorial, advertising commissions, art licensing, live-sketching opportunities and workshops.
