About me

Hi! I’m Linda, the artist behind this page! Thank you so much for visiting!

I have been drawing for a long time, and I have always had the dream to make art a substantial part of my life. Since 2015 I’ve lifted my hobby to the first small commissions, and now I create art and illustrations for various companies and individuals. The next step is The Blue Pangolin, a proper website to show my portfolio, combined with a gallery and a web shop. My ultimate goal is to fuse high art skills with catchy speaking images, in order to create top-of-the-shelf artwork.

The artist in action!

Professional painter, designer and illustrator
During the past years, I’ve been commissioned with mostly paintings or as illustrator. I illustrate using traditional techniques, mostly ink and watercolor paint. My current illustration style can be described as colorful and expressive. The canvas commissions have been paintings with a meaning, either portraying an ideal or a path.

I feel honored to tell I’ve worked on three big projects already, within University museum Utrecht and Xperto, and am currently working for Strooming. For the first project, I created cartoon figures used in an educational program. For Xperto, I created illustrations for the educational program Mik, used in the second year of primary school. For Strooming, I made illustrations fitting their brochure on smell and hygiene problems within buildings. Right now, I’m working for SIGHT Landscaping. Most of my time there is spend as biologist (my other passion!) and periodically I create digital visuals like posters, flyers, info-signs and flowcharts.

Currently, I have some time for new commissions and project. Contact me for a free brainstorm session on your next challenge. I’m very broadly orientated and flexible, I have a can-do attitude and I would like to work with your ideas!
