Hi, I’m Tessa, an illustrator and 2D animator based in Utrecht, NL.

In my work, I love to combine digital and analogue elements to create rich and playful visuals. Most of my work is centered around characters, all with their own stories and emotions, often using myself as an inspiration (that maybe explains all the characters with the short blond hair and turtlenecks). But mostly, I want to make people smile when they see my work.

As a freelancer, I enjoy working on a variety of projects (commissioned and personal), including animated music videos, explainer animations, and illustrations. When I’m not working, I enjoy making my own ceramic teacups with weirdly shaped faces and trying my hand at some new vegetarian recipes.

Education: University of the Arts Utrecht (Bachelor of Design, 2D Animation).
