‘I always enjoyed drawing since I was a child, my school books were filled with doodles and song lyrics. My passion is to make illustrations inspired by music, and that’s how Illustrated Songs began. It was born as my Final Project for Uni, when I made a long illustrated scroll depicting the lyrics of Space Oddity. I picked it up again about 3 years ago and started making drawings inspired by other songs that I love. It’s a very special project to me and I can tell that it will continue growing for a long time.
Music is my main source of inspiration, but also films, people, nature, antique postcards and artworks, and beautiful things in general. I have many illustration books at home, one of my favourites is ‘Art Forms in Nature: Prints of Ernst Haeckel‘
