Madeleine van der raad

Madeleine van der Raad (Hoorn, the Netherlands, 1978) wanted to become veterinarian, or radiographer, just like her mother. But the passion for drawing was greater, and so she attended the art academy to become an illustrator. She started in Maastricht, and finished her studies in Groningen. Now she has already illustrated quite some schoolbooks and children’s picture books. For Clavis she’s made colorful and lively illustrations for the Want to Know-series, for example the books about camping and about the human body. She prefers to draw with pen and ink and to color with acryl or Photoshop.

Madeleine is living in Groningen with her husband and three children.
