Marieke van Ditshuizen

Pathways: training in Cartooning

Marieke van Ditshuizen has been a self-taught illustrator since 2003. After studying Design and Communication and Social Sciences, she wanted to try her hand at illustration first, because drawing is in her blood. After several years of experimenting in all corners of the field and with all kinds of materials and techniques, she was allowed to illustrate her first book in 2010. Since then, Marieke has always illustrated books for various publishing houses. Her books have been translated into more than 10 languages. She has been shortlisted for the World Illustrations Awards, from Keycolours and was one of the winners of Picture This! (Formerly Lemniscaat Illustration Prize). She also gives workshops, courses and coaching where she enjoys passing on her own experiences and practical knowledge.
