My name is Mimi. Welcome to my website and thank you for taking the time to view my work. I’m an illustrator — sometimes creative director — from Amsterdam. I fancy reading on a rainy afternoon, watching fantastical films and brewing a fresh pot of tea.
As a kid I was always reading books or drawing. During my studies, Media Management, I interned at a national (Dutch) TV station/production company. After graduating I kept working in the tv industry for a bit. I also had some less creative jobs, like working in a cloakroom, where I learned a lot of things that inspire me to this day.
In 2013 I created a video illustrating Alice in Wonderland, shared it on social media and emailed it to contacts. After that, fashion brands starting contacting me and asking me to do live-art for their events. I began working with magazines and lifestyle brands as well. Since then I’ve worked for clients such as: Moët & Chandon, H&M, Hugo Boss, Estée Lauder, Kit Kat, TOPSHOP, Lancôme, UGG Australia, Ted baker, Marc Cain, CosmoGIRL! and L’officiel Magazine.
Whilst continuing to work with fashion and lifestyle brands, I’m now also taking the time to create children’s illustrations and picture book illustrations (a long time dream). I’ve just recently started sharing these on my website and social channels, and I’m planning to make a lot more. My goal right now is to work together with publishers and authors to create interesting, fun and wondrous stories!
