I prefer to work traditionally, with watercolor. I scan these paintings in order to digitally edit and optimize them. Characteristic of my work is a fairly realistic style combined with more painterly backgrounds. Something that watercolor lends itself perfectly to. I also like to use different perspectives, because this gives extra dynamism to an image. 

In July 2022 I won the international illustration competition Picture this! from publisher Lemniscaat.
