The gardening illustrator

Hi I'm Elisa Verwoest-Schöne, the gardening illustrator. Together with my partner and kids I live in an ecological community in Houten (in the heart of the Netherlands). Living here is of great influence on my work. Especially the garden makes me more and more aware of my love for things that grow. I really like studying details of plants while gardening. And in the meantime I enjoy the laughter of our kids playing around me.


I am a creator. And although I took a slight detour in the cultural field by studying Museology and Conservation of modern and contemporary art, I never stopped creating art. I love using and combining traditional techniques such as linocuts, collage and watercolor. The main themes in my work are nature, gardening and children.

I'd love to work together, creating something beautiful.

Do you feel the same or do you have a question?
Please contact me. I am sure there's something in it for both of us.
