Marieke van Ditshuizen
After two studies, Marieke van Ditshuizen finally took the plunge. She wanted to work as an illustrator. She started to write her own stories, and to experiment with various materials and techniques to find her style. Now, she both writes and illustrates stories that have a lot of fantasy in it. Marieke is inspired by the curiosity of children and the fact that they can be astonished by anything: from a little bug on a branch to the man on the moon. With her books, Marieke likes to suck them into a magical world in which anything can happen.
