About me

Hi, my name is Lieke Straver. I’m working as a freelance illustrator in my studio at home in Waddinxveen (near Gouda). I’m easily inspired by everything around me, especially by nature. A lot of my time I’m working on new ideas, sketches and trying out new drawing and painting techniques. You can see in my illustrations that I love to work with a variety of materials and combinations of them.  I make colorful illustrations for picture books, children’s books, postcards and more. Take a look at my website or instagram page for information and more illustrations!

genre : Other, Book, Cartoon
technique : Oils, Gouache, Color Pencil, Watercolor
