My name is Myra, and I like to illustrate everything I can lay my hands on.
I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld
Academy in Amsterdam in 2008, and specialized in stage design.
After my studies I developed several interactive social / theatrical projects. Besides that, I've always been drawing. Sometimes just for myself, and more often to design logo's, cartoons, graphic design, etc.
In 2011 I moved to Berlin, and am mostly focused on illustrations. I like to cut and paste (collages), and developed a strong signature style.
The most important thing to me is to communicate a clear message. My style is very straight forward, without too much hassle. My drawings are sharp, elementary and minimalistic. My favorite pen is a black marker, but depending on the subject I like to also make pen drawings, collages, screenprints and linoleum prints.
I'm inspired by awkward situations, sayings, spaces and deadpan humor.
I work as a freelance illustrator, cartoonist and
stage / production designer.

About & Contact
My name is Myra, and I make Illustrations and other things.
In 2008 I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. I studied Fine Arts and Stage Design.
Stage Design is all about translating a story to an image. And that is exactly what I do in my illustrations and animations. I can help you to communicate your story in an easy and playfull way to your audience or customers.
When you're interested in working with me you can send an email to , or give me a call on 0031 (0) 612093324.
In return you get a very flexible freelance co-worker, good at organisation and 24/7 brainfarts on all kinds of topics. (Dance-breaks on terrible '90s music included).
Also, in my spare time I'm a captain and a pirate. I have a little ship, which is also my workspace. So your assignments might be made on international open waters. Or in a hopeless stream somewhere in the inlands of Liechtenstein.
