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!
