Hi! I am a graphic designer and illustrator based in Amsterdam. When I’m not in front of a piece of paper, my ipad pro or computer, you can find me people-watching and roller-skating my way through the city.

 

While studying for my bachelor of design at the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) I made a big fall from the stairs at home, landing on my head. After the accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury, I had to step back from the computer for a while. I regained a stronger passion for traditional illustration, art and hand lettering, with the tactility of real materials.

 

But I also really appreciate being able to create behind the computer again now. Making digital illustrations, using 3D modeling software, coding and making designs in Adobe Illustrator. Often jumping from one thing to another, interlacing multiple fields.
