Welcome! My name is Barbara van Rheenen (Amsterdam, 1967). I am a freelance illustrator and live together with my husband in Dordrecht.
After several artistic training courses I made my first picture book: "The boy and the whales", published by Clavis publishing in 2002.
My love for the sea and all creatures within is reflected in much of my work, I prefer organic forms above straight lines and always try to create an atmosphere.
I much enjoy illustrating and writing children books but also like a different challenge; I did an assignment for Naturalis but also a construction company was one of my customers.
