Welcome to my portfolio site! I am a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, live illustrator and artist based in a small city (Haarlem) near Amsterdam. I love making fun playful colorful design and telling stories with my artwork. Fine graphic lines, patterns, naive art, oriental motifs and art nouveau elements can be found in my work. Besides this work I also teach children dance and yoga- this also inspires my artwork, writing childrens stories and making art for young children. Currently I also offer live illustrating at events, parties and other gatherings. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and if you have any questions please contact me. Another website of mine is www.artfun4you.nl  (mara@artfun4you.nl)
