About Martine

Martine_2014_03As a kid, I used to draw on everything! I could spend hours drawing and softly humming to myself, completely isolated in my own world. As I grew older, I realised I could use my illustrations to tell a story or to explain things to others. Due drawing as much as I did, I gained a lot of experience and became an allround illustrator.

My character ‘Lotus’ was born while working on a birth-announcement for a little girl named Lotus. A drew a little babygirl in the hands of her parents and after a while a started making more illustrations in this style, with Lotus as a leading character. I sent her out on adventures and let her meet new friends.

I get inspired by nature and travelling the world. My Icelandic Sheepdog and furry buddy Mika is also a great source of inspiration.
