Hello, thank you for visiting my website!

I am a freelance illustrator and designer based in Amsterdam. My work a.o. consists of murals and prints built of patterns and repetitive layers, inspired by recursions found in life, deep-sea oceans and the sky.

Most of the illustrations featured on this website were created between
2007 and 2011, when I was based in Tokyo. During this period I created work for interior architects, magazines, clothing brands, advertisement agencies and digital devices.

In
2006 I worked as a print designer for Oilily, the famous children’s clothing brand from The Netherlands.

Between
2003 and 2006 I was the fashion- & interior editor for Libelle, the largest Dutch women’s weekly magazine, for which I a.o. created and produced many editorial photo shoots.

In
2003 I received a B.A. from the Fashion & Design-department at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). For my graduation I created several multifunctional clothing designs to increase safety and comfort. Additionally I conceptualized a color- and material forecast for fashion- and interior design.

Hope to see you soon,
Sonja
