Brief Summary

Hi, my name is Petra van Berkum and I'm an illustrator from the Netherlands.
I love creating colourful and often dreamy illustrations for all sorts of clients, but especially for children's market, (fantasy) books, games and concept art.

In July 2011 I graduated in Illustration and Design from Academy Minerva in Groningen.
My passion for illustration comes from my love for nature, fantasy, philosophy and everyday adventures. I also work in anime and manga style sometimes!
