Three words to describe the work of artist and illustrator Xantha-Iris Vorst (1977): Colourful, surprising and playful. Xantha-Iris graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam in 2002 and since then she has been illustrating picture books for several Dutch publishing houses. Xantha-Iris works mainly for educational and children books publishers, in watercolour or with acrylic paint. She also designs logo’s.
Next to her illustrative work, Xantha-Iris paints, in vivid colours and always includes a little surprise in her art. You can find her on facebook facebook.com/xiv.nl or come and meet her in person on the Art square Spui in Amsterdam!
