TEKEN-ING = INGRID
Hi! I am Ingrid (1986), illustrator and prettymaker from Rotterdam (The Netherlands).
I live in a cosy, 100 year old house where I enjoy a studio at home. I have a big love for color, plants, patterns, dancing and anything with pompoms or polkadots. Fun facts: There is always playing a song in my head, organising stuff makes me ridiculously happy and I enjoy riding my bicycle when it’s raining.

Being a creator at heart, I do what I love most: making images, decorating and telling short stories. Ever since I was a student I’ve been working as an independent illustrator with a love for the four ‘P’s’: paint, pencil, paper and product. My work is used for editorial, educational and graphic communications in which I specialize in a combination of both hand drawn and digital illustrations. Detail, color and texture are key to my work, there is always a handmade feel to it.

If you are curious about my current projects, go to my @teken_ing Instagram to see more                                                                                   behind the scences and work in progress!
