Nice to meet you :)
My name is Wendy Denissen, an illustrative freelance designer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
In my work I combine graphic shapes with bold patterns and vibrant colours. I like to zoom in on the hardships
and joy of the every day life. I can’t get enough of creating new characters and my work reflects my
interest in garden-life, food and fashion.
I work for magazines and books, for (young) adults and children. People can both dream away and relate
with the little scenes I create in my illustrations. This makes my work a good fit for design agencies as
well: I feel like a fish in the water creating illustrations within the framework of an assignment and its goal,
never losing the necessary fantasy and playfulness out of sight.
I had a quiet childhood on my parents farm, where I was raised with my five siblings. It was here that
I learned that your own imagination is a wonderful thing.
