Hi! I'm Jade, and I’m an illustrator and storyteller based in the Netherlands. 
I have a deep love for stories, be it written, drawn, told or shown. When I was younger, whenever I got handed a coloring page, I would flip the page around to draw my own stories on the back of the paper. Storytelling is a big part of my thought process, I try to always add story to everything I create! My favorite thing to do when drawing is working with color and light, experiment with all the options it gives me!
Aside from all art related things, I love to cook and bake, travel the world to get inspired by the beauty it has to offer and drink tea! I also really like to dabble around in street photography and pottery! And... also I like gardening, attempting plein air painting with Gouache, making music and reading. I have a lot of hobbies! ;) 
Thank you for visiting! If you want to chat some more, or have a project in mind that I'd be a good fit for! Don't hesitate to reach out to me at  info@yu-niq.com
