Nice to meet ya!

Anna Lena van Iersel is a Dutch illustrator, educator and creative instagrammer. Her colorful and communicative illustrations have helped clients like KPMG, Women’s Health and the Tutu Shop underline their ideas.


All Anna Lena’s illustration work is made partially by hand, partially digitally. By using analog elements and textures, and combining these with digital crispness, a unique appearance is achieved. Whether working on a mural or on a postcard, her work is filled to the brim with personality.


Anna Lena loves cooking, dancing and old buildings. When she is not painting in her studio she likes being outside, wandering around beautiful Gouda. With it’s medieval, romantic atmosphere, it is the perfect place for an artist to get inspired and explore. Her favorite spots to work are her studio, libraries, and en plein air.



I create artwork for children’s books and home decor markets. I also like creating book covers, stationery and occasionally create murals and window drawings, or do portraits at markets and events. You can also commission me to create custom portraits or birth announcements!
