About

My name is Joey and I am a freelance illustrator and animator.

I have been drawing quite literally all my life. Which was stimulated by my elementary and high school – a Waldorf school with a high amount of creative subjects. When I was 15 I moved to Sweden where I attended a preparatory Art & Design program at the Folkuniversitetet in Karlstad. I graduated 2015 with distinction in design. Following that I did a bachelor called Visual Communication + Change at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden. An experimental and interdisciplinary study focused on sustainability and design. Which I graduated from in 2018.

Since 2018 onwards I work as a freelance artist focussing mainly on illustration. In 2019 I had the privilege to work on the first dutch interactive animation (ROBIN), doing storyboarding, concept, layout and background art. Currently I am living in and working from Amsterdam.
