I teach workshops for (aspiring) artists, helping them to tell their own stories using art and creativity. Besides teaching, I love writing about my craft in the form of ebooks and blogs. My illustration studio began out of a lifelong need to draw, and took off while I was getting my MSc Industrial Design at TU Delft.
With a knack for stories, you will often spot me reading or wandering around making gooey eyes with an old building. When I’m not making art, I love to read, cook lavish dinners, and throw parties. I am based in Gouda, the Netherlands.
In the past months I have been working intensively with Anna Lena. She created the illustrations for my book “Verdwalen, als eerste stap..”; her creativity and involvement make her very special. She has a distinct style, is cooperative and quality-oriented. In short: amazing to co-create with. To me, she is a true artist! – Wick Lichtveld
It was real pleasure to work with Anna Lena. She is not only very talented but also communicates very well, is always open to feedback and sticks to her deadlines! We started working with her for social media content but would love to make good use of her talent for other occasions 🙂 – Aline and Emilie, TUTU Shop
Recently Anna Lena made live illustrations at our business event. And I can not be happier with the results. All our guests were standing in line for her creative artworks. Apart from her brilliant pieces of work, she is also the life of the party with her wonderful personality and good humor. Hire this girl for your event! – Petra van Veen, Hashtag Workmode
You can commission me to do brand, editorial and book illustration, but also to teach workshops or speak at your event. You can of course also reach out if you are looking to collaborate in other ways. I, for one, can’t wait to meet you.
