I’m Beatrijs, I like my coffee strong as a Russian bear and usually I hover between the Netherlands and England.
I love stories, birds and beasts, and all those crazy flowers and plants of endless inspiration. Drawing and painting make me happiest, and Beastlyworlds is a place where my mostly benevolent critters can prance around and be archived. Please look on them kindly! They can only be blamed for 18 % of what goes on around here. The Stress Beast is probably responsible for the rest.
I studied Chinese and Chinese literature and spent some time in Taiwan studying Chinese and drawing like crazy -also eating – which you can read about in the Taiwan Journal section.
Some other places you can find my stuff a-lurking:
A Tumblr site called Birds and Their Secrets, on which I post all kinds of doodles and fan art illustrations, and
an Instagram site where I put up photos of things that fill me with wonder and happiness as well as pics of artwork in progress.
Commissions: If you would like something I’ve drawn to be made available as a product on my store, or if you are interested in commissioning something drawn or painted specially for you, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks for taking a look!
