What I love most about my work are the opportunities it gives me to reveal all the lush, aesthetic details of the natural world.

While I've always had a fascination for nature and an eye for detail, I have developed my skills to use for both traditional and fresh, contemporary illustration styles.

I use a spectrum of illustration styles for my projects. In my view, each project demands an appropriate visual language to get the right story across.
 
Since graduating with a Masters in Scientific Illustrations from the University of Maastricht in 2008, my clients have included museums, design studio's, advertising agencies, publishers, (socio) political organizations and scientific institutes that work on social or sustainability themes.

I most enjoy teaming up with clients who want to enlighten and guide their audiences towards a viable future.

Whenever you look closely at nature and allow yourself to be enchanted by its incredible beauty, your view changes. You begin to see even more, and you start to appreciate the planet and its inhabitants even more.
It's both beautiful and humbling to realize how we're all part of a bigger whole.
