So this is what I've been doing the last couple of years.

Or actually all of my life.

As far as I can remember I've been drawing.

On every paper I could find. And on my clothes …

my closet, my window, the family couch, my sisters.

I can't really do anything without drawing at the same time.

 

So yes, I ended up in animation school, drawing.

I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) IN 2006.

 

After working in a production company for a few years - animating - art directing and illustrating, it was time to start as a freelancer. 

In 2015 - together with my oldest sister and Graphic designer Jill - we decided that what we were making needed more meaning ... So ... we started an educational gaming company.

It all started with Ava-trix.com and became CuriousCats.be

Now 5 years later I decided it was time to - again - do more of my own thing.

Back to basic.

back to illustrating

 

Again I've been designing animations, a lot of publicity stuff, characters, art-directing games, making Birth cards, film posters, stages for theater, books, the ceiling of a pink hippie shop, peoples tattoos... 

 

Though, no commissioned work for a couch yet.

Anyone?
