Info/Contact

I am an illustrator working and living in Zürich, Switzerland. I make images for magazines, posters, flyers, picture books, album covers and a lot more. Apart from making illustrations I also work as a Graphic designer in a small studio in Basel. I like old movies, the dutch sense of humor and feel some wanderlust ever so often.

Please feel free to contact me for questions, job inquiries or sales.
