‘I can’t even draw a stick figure!’
That was my standard answer when someone who had just learned that I studied creative writing and children’s literature asked me if I also illustrated my own stories.
And for a long time, I believed this statement to be true.
Then, on the 1st of January 2016, I joined a month-long drawing challenge and nothing has ever been the same again.
Today, I write and illustrate children’s books which, at their heart, are always about connection. This is important to me because I believe that in this hyper-connected world, we often take for granted - or even forget - the connections which are most important in life – those to ourselves, to the people closest to us and the environment.
I live in Amsterdam with my two cats, Momo & Mae.
