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In 2015 I got an 'Honorable mention' for my unpublished book Cas de cat from 3x3magazine Annual No.12 in New York.


In 2016 my first picturebook 'Kaila de leeuwentemmer' written by Marloes Kemming is published by Publishing house De Vier Windstreken.


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.
