Colourful and detailed drawings for children’s books that evoke a feel of wonder are key to Caroline van Pelt’s work as an illustrator. While living and working in Apeldoorn, she graduated from the prestigious Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2002. Her fantastical designs for kids books are published by advertising agencies, commercial labels and print publishers. Caroline likes to pair up computer animation and hand work to create her illustrations. Surrounded by nature and a fairy-tale like setting as a young girl her body of work now often resembles flora and fauna.
