My name is Elze van den Akker. I am a Dutch freelance illustrator living in Amsterdam. I specialize in bold, quirky and colourful illustrations to add that sparkle to your daily life. I love making animals, floral illustrations, and landscapes often with a witty touch. Papercut or collage is the starting point of most of my illustrations but I like to add black pencil drawing  or do something completely different every once in a while.

My life motto is;
'We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing'

George Bernard Shaw
