Drawing is my greatest passion. I just love to let my imagination run wild and to step inside another world. A world where everything is possible and anything can be created. In this way I can create space for my creativity and fantasy.
Together with my beautiful little son, I live in a picturesque town nearby the sea. There is nothing I find more inspiring than the beauties of nature. The colors, the flowers, the sky and the shapes of sand… Also, cultural arts from far away lands inspire me, like old ornaments and fabrics. It all brings new ideas to me!
All of my designs are drawn by hand. As a little girl I was always busy with drawing and I could sit for hours and hours behind my desk. Today this is still the same! It brings me peace and happiness.
In 2008, I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. After my Master Degrees in Fine Arts at the Sandberg Instituut, I started to create my first colouring books for adults. Now, I made my own business out of it: Masja’s Artwork. I can use my passion for drawing and designing every day. How beautiful is that!
Next to colouring books, I design fabrics, birth announcement cards and work as a freelancer as well.
I hope to convey my childlike wonders about the world, through the creation of my colouring books and, in this way, inspire the people around me. To let others drift away in ‘my wonderful world’!
