In 2002 I graduated from the HKU (School of the Arts Utrecht) and have ever since worked as a freelance illustrator for various clients. I make bright colorful illustrations for books, children's magazines and much more. At this time, particularly illustrations for children. Always so much fun to come up with new figures and to be busy with color and composition!
Usually I draw everything right away in Photoshop, using my Wacom pen. Every now and then I like to use photos and blend them with the illustrated elements in a balanced way.
I live in Breda (The Netherlands) with my partner Philip, son Guus (2009), daughter Fien (2012) and dog called Jip.
