The answer is: GREAT!
Today I got enlisted in the trade register for the Netherlands, which means I am now officially running my own business as an artist, designer and photographer. Being my own boss, working on comission and selling my art has always been my dream and with the help of my wonderful boyfriend Mischa - thanks so much! - who helped me with my website, contact cards and all the paperwork this is finally the day.
My website is in Dutch and will probably remain so for the time being, seeing as I only have Dutch customers so far. You can contact me if you want to have something painted (be it a portrait of your niece, a picture of your cat or something original like a character you created.. etc.), if you're looking for someone to illustrate your book, flyer or anything else in that direction. I design logos aswell and I'm available for photoshoots on location.
