Hi there! In short: I’m a Dutch illustrator as well as author of picture books. My work often focuses on societal and mental health topics, and I am a keen believer in breaking taboos using the power of stories. I live and work in Arnhem, the Netherlands. My books are written and published in both Dutch and English, as the colourful city of Brighton (UK) is a place I fondly used to call home. Have a read about what I do:
I love converting ideas and narratives into posters, flyers, book(let)s, social media content and merchandise. I very much enjoy working together to create something exciting and bespoke to help you convey your message. I am available for commissions and would love to talk ideas with you.
Children are some of the wisest creatures on this planet. I believe that picture books are the perfect vehicle to introduce young children to difficult, profound topics, without feeling like they are being lectured to. Hence I enjoy designing picture books that tackle social taboos and highlight current global topics. I feel strongly committed to encouraging diversity, equality and solidarity, both inside and outside the books and other artwork I design. Contact me for a chat!
