About me


Born in 1987 in Aachen, close to the Dutch and Belgium border, drawing started to be a passion of mine when I was able to hold a pen and continues to be to this day.There is a story in every illustration. No matter if it’s traditional scientific illustration or computer generated character design, I create a story in every single drawing not in spoken words but in an international visual language.
2014 I finished my MA in Scientific Illustration at the ABKM Maastricht after I got my BA in Illustration in summer 2011.

My work

As a daughter of two ornithologists and natural scientists I have always been enchanted by nature. For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to illustration, science and to nature. It is the reason why I not only make commercial illustrations but also love to work in the field of scientific illustration.
In both fields the start of an illustration, but rendering it is possible in different kind of media: Watercolour, Colour pencil, digital or mixed media.
