Esther Miskotte (Amsterdam, July 22, 1969) attended a few years of ‘Drawing and Painting classes in Artschool’ and then went to ‘Pabo’-college, both in Amsterdam. After that she combined teaching at primary school for a while with making sculptures and paintings. Since she published her first picture book at Clavis in 2013, she now mainly focuses on illustrating and writing children’s books. It’s important to Esther that teachers can use her books in class. But fantasy and humor also play an important role.
