About me

Hi there. Yes that’s me, standing in front of some leaves (I love plants), happily pursuing a healthy work-life balance from the small historic city of Middelburg in the Netherlands with my husband and our two cats. I’m passionate about art, illustration, plants and sustainable living.

I’m currently available for editorial and book illustration. If you have any questions or requests, just get in touch.

A little backstory: in 1996 I started working in graphic design and have been running my own small business ever since, gradually adding illustration, photography, consultation, translation and copywriting to the mix. studio groenling is the official name of my company but I no longer take on graphic design clients. New website coming soon.

Personal projects: around 2011 I started blogging, crafting and drawing whenever I could find the time, back then using the alias Mouseblossom (my nickname is Mouse). In 2015 I also founded visualstrands.com; an online lifestyle zine featuring & connecting inspiring people in art, design, illustration, photography, urban green, the great outdoors & more.

For my art and illustration it made sense to use my own name though, hence this separate website and shop. Much more personal. So here I am. And here you are. Let’s connect!
