Ytje Illustration and Drawing

Ytje Veenstra

With a keen eye for framing and use of color, Ytje creates work in which concept, research and skill are intertwined. Always challenging herself, she recently developed her new style, the papercut, to complement her pencil work and digital drawings. Her body of work is elegant: it has just the right amount of detail, be it richly layered or stylized and to the point. Her versatility shows in the vast range of subjects she tackles. 

Her versatility isn't limited to drawing alone; she also writes, letting her own peculiar brand of opinion and observation shine, be it about socio-political subjects, gaming, literature or music.

Ytje has worked for notable clients, nationally and internationally. Her art has been exhibitied in different parts of the world and her work has appeared in several high-end publications. She loves teaching children and coaching students.

Selected clients: het Parool, Moët & Chandon, Esquire, Vrij Nederland, ...,Staat Amsterdam, Red, Atmosphere/BBDO (NYC), 160 over 90/ Boston Redevelopment Authority.

Ytje is represented by Unit cma, Amsterdam.
