It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something… I wanted to do a “new years post” but al of a sudden it’s march (#momlife I suppose?)
The past year was a rollercoaster🎢 A lot of extreme ups and extreme downs. So I am hoping for a more relaxed year ahead.
To sum it up: I was pregnant, my father passed away, Niek and I became official partners, I quit my teaching job at the school I’ve been working for almost ten years, we moved to Oslo, Norway, found a nice apartment and finally little Kasper was born 🥰!
A whole lot of emotional life changing events I’d say. So no wonder I’ve been away from instagram for a while… And with a baby there’s not much time for sketching and painting… (though I did some, as you can see in this post ☝🏽😊)
Life in Oslo has been really nice so far! We explored nature around Oslo. A lot of friends and family have been visiting us. I’ve met a lot of nice people; some urban sketchers and some great international moms and their little ones! 😄
I hope I will be able to work on my portfolio the coming months and start creating a network around me. When Kasper goes to barnehagen (daycare) in August I can really start building up my illustration business here in Norway and the Netherlands. Contacting publishers and finding some places to sell my work 💪🏽 Really looking forward to that!
So hopefully I’ll be able to be more active on Instagram again. ( I did do some birth announcement cards the past few months, which I will post soon! And of course Kaspers card 🤩🥳 !!)
Hope you guys are all doing well? Hopefully you’ll keep following me on my illustration journey 😊 thanks to all of you for the support so far! ❤️
