My name is Merel. I am 24 years old and I graduated in summer 2019. I studied Multimedia, Concepting & Design at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen.

Now, I work as a visual designer. In my free time, I create illustrations and videos. I started with creating art journal spreads in 2017, because in this digital world I missed working with actual paper and paint.

Fun fact about me: I have a twin sister! She's seventeen minutes older than I am.

If you ever see someone who looks similiar, it might not be me. ;)
