Down below you can find frequently asked questions like what materials do i use, what did i study and where you can buy my art.
Education? I spent a year in art school, but actually not in illustration but in photography. This was however not the right course and moment for an education in art. I personally believe that you don’t need a degree to work in the creative industry. After my year in art school i began studying art therapy, in which i have a bachelors degree. Exploration of as many materials as possible was very important during this study. I discovered what materials suited me and which ones don’t. For a few years my focus was working as an art therapeut, later on my own creative journey became more and more important to me.
Pens? I use black bic pens.
Pencils? It depends on the goal. If i’m working on a realistic piece i like my Prismacolor Premier Soft Color pencils. But mostly i like my Caran d’Ache Pablo pencils.
Paper? I haven’t found the perfect paper yet, but also here it depends on the goal. For multimedia pieces i like the Strathmore watercolor paper and for pen en pencil drawings i like to use Canson multi-technique paper at the moment.
Brushes? As long as they work precise and aren’t made out of animal hair.
Watercolors? For watercolor pieces i like to use my Faber-Castell watercolor pencils.
Sketchbooks? Whatever i have on hand actually. I have expensive ones en very cheap ones from Flying Tiger for example.
I am taking personal/private commissions at the moment.
You can buy cards, stickers and prints in my Etsy shop. 🙂 Originals you can find here on the website.
