I'm a Graphic Designer / Illustrator / Art educator living and working in Amsterdam.

I studied ‘Graphic design’ at Media College Amsterdam and ‘Illustration’ at the University of the Arts in Utrecht. Since my graduation I’ve worked freelance for design/marketing agencies, took part at multiple exhibitions with my paintings, made illustrations for various magazines and educational books and owned a little artshop in the centre of Amsterdam. 

I recently (July 2023) achieved a Bachelor of Education degree for Fine Art and Design teacher at the Breitner Academy in Amsterdam. See my graduate research here.

Besides my work, I love art, traveling, watching series, working out at the gym, visiting a museum, going to a concert and I love taking a long walk on the beach with my sweetheart and dog Spike.

Get in touch

I'm available for commissioned illustration, graphic design projects and as an Art teacher.
