Hooray! It's Thursday and time for another Maker introduction from 'Maker Spaces'. Today I want to introduce you to the lovely Maartje van den Noort from Amsterdam. Maartje is a designer and illustrator who I discovered really early on in the research for my book thanks to the wonderful The Makers Amsterdam. I loved Maartje's gorgeous drawings and her close connection to nature.
Maartje lives in Amsterdam with her husband and works in a shared studio and at the Grafisch Werkcentrum, which is an amazing place full of old printing machinery. Letterpress heaven!
I love the calmness of both Maartje's work and her home and studio, and all the beautiful, delicate details.
I love how Maartje's work has really inspired my daughter who loves drawing birds.
