I am kind of obsessed with food. At breakfast, I’m already thinking about lunch. At lunch, I am wondering what to make for dinner. Sometimes before I fall asleep at night, I already look forward to breakfast. So it’s obvious to me that food is an important part of my art habit. Food is a fantastic topic – it’s so versatile. And as you’re eating anyway every day, it might be an opportunity to create a daily habit of drawing. Works for me!
Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels. View all posts by Koosje Koene
