About me

I am a Dutch illustrator of children's books. My passion towards illustration first emerged as I worked as a theatre-maker. I used to have my own children's theatre company and designed the decor, the clothing, the dolls and invented the stories.

In 2009 I starded as an illustrator. I am self-taught.

In 2017 my second book 'Cas the cat' is published in the Netherlands. Cas the cat is a result of the cooperation with museum the CatCabinet in Amsterdam.

 

In former days I used to work in India and Nepal as a trekking guide in the Himalyas. From there I traveled in several countries in Asia. In addition to nature in general, Asia forms a great inspiration for me.

For my work I mainly use acrylic, ink and alkyd (fast drying oil paint)in combination with pencil.
