I'm a freelance Graphic Designer / Illustrator living and working in Amsterdam. I like to find inspiration in everyday life and create work by using traditional and digital media.

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. 

Besides work, I love to travel, watch series, work out in the gym, visit a museum, go out dancing with friends and take a long walk on the beach with my love and doggy Spike.

Get in touch

I'm available for commissioned illustration and graphic design projects.
