About me

Hello! I am a historian of medieval East Asia and I love drawing and telling stories with images. This is my website where I share all kinds of critters that sprang from my imagination, copies from the great masters, and whatever else my pens, pencils and brushes put into the world. I was trained in traditional art and developed a love for gouache and pencil, and have also moved into the 21st century with digital drawing.

I hail from Belgium and have lived in the UK, the Netherlands, and the United States, and studied in China and Korea. After many years in higher education, I am ready to embark on a new career back in the land of chocolates, waffles, fries, and beer.

I love using drawings and comics to bring out the essence of complex topics and to make history accessible to a wider audience. If you’re interested in collaborating, or if you’re looking for an illustration to go with one of your projects, contact me!
