I am an illustrator based in the Netherlands (Utrecht). I specialise in conceptual illustrations. Such illustrations serve experts when they have to communicate complex ideas in simple ways and/or make their work stand out from the crowd.
Before turning all my attention to this creative endeavour, I occupied different roles in academia. There was always some degree of interdisciplinarity. I researched and taught diverse topics in social sciences pertaining to organization and management. I collaborated with experts in engineering and computer science. I hold a doctorate in organizational sciences.
This background enables me to get up to speed quickly in a new illustration project. I am curious about clients' ideas and stories and enjoy reading and thinking along. Clients feel the space to express ideas, make suggestions and provide feedback about the intermediary drawings. As result, the completed artwork will resonate with the client and their target audience.
