Sitting in a spot and drawing creates a moment out of time, where you connect entirely with the soul of the place. When I travel I spend most of my time with a sketchbook to create beautiful memories.


The first two paintings, Gele Dageraad (110x90cm) and Winter op Noordereiland (120x180cm), are an homage to the majesty of the Maas. Gele Dageraad won the public award at the exhibition "ILoveDeMaas" at the Maritiem Museum Rotterdam and is now in the museum collection.

Hi folks, I'm Elise, half-artist, half-nerd. I love strong lines, color blocks and Dutch skies. I have done several painting exhibitions in Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam, and worked as a portrait artist. Now I mostly focus on illustrations and paintings on request (love to make people happy), and cartoons for myself. If you have the imperious need to hang something on your wall you can drop me an email there:
