About me

Hi! I am Brenda, and I create illustrations that tell the story of the non-human world. I think I was born with a pencil in hand. Although I graduated as a primatologist, I never let go of that pencil. I manage a variety of styles: from character design to scientific illustrations, and from logo's to editorial work. I work both digital and analogue, using Procreate, pen, pencils, watercolour and acrylics. Visit my website to view my full portfolio (see button below). Did my drawings spark your enthusiasm? Then please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'd love to help you make your project an epic one!
