Opening up shop?

We’re coming out!


Since I took some classes last fall by the lovely Kim Welling, we have become friends. Kim is the sweetest person. And as it turnes out: we share the same dream! After much quietness…we are finally coming out!

We have applied for a space in Utrecht to open up an illustration shop/ studio together!


Utterly excited we are.


We can hardly stand waiting for the news that we will be in or not… We will have to wait till June… Oh, June…!

Fingers crossed!


Last week Kim and I went to Breda to learn about owning a shop by the kind (and so funny!) Pamela from beautiful Feito Com Amor.

See Kim’s post about the visit:

Thanks so much, Pamela, for being so frank and giving us so much wonderful advice!
