Rosanne van Spaendonck
I am an illustrator from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have been drawing for my entire life, and so it was only natural for me to pursue illustration as a career. So far I have several publishings to my name, among which a fully illustrated children's book called 'De meermin, het monster en de maan'. The medium I like to use most is Indian ink or fine liners; most of my work is black and white and has quite a dark tone to it.
I am most interested in exploring the expression of human emotion, in all its forms. There is something beautiful and fascinating about dark emotions, as it can affect the way people think and act so strongly that it can create either such beauty or extreme devastation - within themselves or towards others. Most often I am also trying to find a way to reflect the emotions that I myself experience, as a way to release them from my body onto the paper.
