A bit about me
I have loved art and books since I was tiny. My first best friends were Ramona, Eloise, and Ferdinand. In illustration, I can't resist tiny lines and cheeky expressions, especially on kids and imaginary animals. Other favorites include bicycles, quiet time, and small treasures. I currently live in the Netherlands, which, happily, has all of these.
Whether for a picture book or a frame in your home, my art honors the playful, tender spirit of childhood.
