Tjitske Zijlstra, b. 1989 in Wolvega, The Netherlands. Currently living in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Tjitske studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Academy Minerva in Groningen, minoring in graphic design, graduating in 2013.
Working as a freelance designer, but also in love with illustrating. I enjoy working with digital and traditional media. Recently re-discovering digital painting which allows me a different style I handle in traditional illustrating, but always trying to put those emotions into an original piece that reflects either me, or the person who it is destined for.
Although Tjitske has a wide range of interest, she loves nature and this is a big part of her work, especially flowers and interesting patterns.
