Daniëlle Schothorst (Soest, NL, 1971) writes and illustrates text-, picture- and comic books for beginner-level readers. She likes to tell stories in a few words. Her illustrations are made in various techniques, such as collages of fabrics and knitwear. She’s inspired by the world around her: her three sons, her dog Muppy, and her experiences as a child. Besides writing and drawing for different media, including the Dutch version of Sesame Street, Daniëlle gives lectures and workshops in schools and libraries. In her spare time, she loves to make sculptures in stone.
