Free work

I have always had a passion for illustration/painting/drawing or in general, creating content.

Since I could hold a pencil I have been drawing and that has not stopped until today.

My education in graphic design / photography / fashion design and of latest marketing and communication on Hyper Island

has made me into the creative person I am today.

Always full of idea's and always recording what I experience or see within different types of mediums.

Below you see a selection of the illustrations i make in my free time.

Everyone has a red tongue 

Inclusive illustrations & poems for children

In the beginning of June 2020 I started with 'Everyone has a red tongue'. Where i focus on inclusive illustrations and poems for children.

I have always had a dream of changing people's mindset to be more open, inclussive and accepting. And I was not sure how to do that?

Untill most of my friends started to get childred in the beginning of 2020 and i realised that they were

creating new life and with that setting the tone for a new generation.

It than came to my mind that the way I could make a small contribution in changing the world  and society for the better,

is to show children what the world really looks when everyone is included.

I do this project purley from the heart with the hope that this reaches children.

And that they, through my illustrations and poems, understand that being different is actually being very normal.
