In a colourful pride palet I make illustrations about topics like feminism, climate-activism, queerness, sexual education and much more. The gradients in my work are not only nice to look at, they also show you that not everything is black or white and pink or blue. Binaries are so last decade!

I mostly draw people and what moves them, quite literally, because honestly my figures never sit still! Just like me, they love to be in motion: to dance, to explore, to swim and to do a handstand just to have a change of perspective. Since I think our society is not fully depicted in general media, inclusivity is one of my main goals.

While the ink flows from my pen, my house on wheels drives down the road. In my fully painted camper van I get inspired by the sunny shores, the big agave trees and the amazing people that I meet.

From my home office on wheels I make editorial illustrations (deMorgen, OneWorld, VICE). With my tablet on my lap and palm trees in the back, I design labels and covers (van de Streek-beer, Daggar Coffee, Uitgeverij Chaos). I love to put some more colour into this world and therefor take every oportunity to paint a wall, a surfboard or a van. 

The “Queerleaders”  that I draw are ready to stand up for themselves and to empower others. With their colourful and round bodies they express that it’s okay not to shave if you don’t want too and that you can love whoever you want to love! Since gender is just a social construct they feel the freedom to be fluid within their gender identity. They tell you to be proud, not in a little voice but in bold type.

My “paper” is their safe space, they won’t stay inside box or hidden in the closet. I press my pencil on political, social and environmetal problems. As an image activist I want to inform and to celebrate. A small finger in the air but followed by a sommersault!

My fingers already start to tingle and my creative brain activated by the idea of you commissioning me, so please don’t hesitate to contact me!
