Els Brouwer

Els Brouwer graduated at the Academy of Arts in Groningen in 1982 and worked as a free-lance illustrator for many years. Els worked with publishers and newspapers illustrating five children's books at the same time!

Her wonderful Christmas card designs, featuring trolls and gnomes, are available in Norway, Finland and the Netherlands and over the past few years she has designed a new collection with fairy-tale characters that we feature here. She uses a combination of water-colour, pencil, pastels and acrylics to achieve these beautiful images.
