Hello I am Dorien, illustrator and graphic designer based in Amsterdam. I grown up in a tiny village, surrounded with my dearest parents and sister, cats, dogs, cows, sheeps and a lot of birds.

I love to peek behind the scenes, ride horses in tutu on one leg, while making eyes at the tigers, and to fly high in a paper circus or a wicked world of canvas.

Strengths? A variety of artistic skills that I am able to combine in one project. Empathy. Legs. Favorite media: watercolor, gouache and acrylic paint, colored pencils and digital equipment.

My work is mainly focused on illustration for children, editorial illustration, personal branding, character design, handlettering and stationary and gifts.
