Roelien studied design and illustration at the University of Pretoria. She pursued her passion for hand drawn print in the London fashion industry, followed by a stint in design for newspapers before focusing on illustration for publishers, magazines and advertisers.
Her style is humorous and approachable with a combination of strong line work, watercolors and decorative pen and ink work. She is open for any discussions about ideas and concepts in order to visualise a creative solution.
I am a Johannesburg based graphic designer and illustrator who is passionate about all things visual and creative. I am highly respectful of deadlines and pride myself on delivering professional and high quality work.
I am constantly pushing to learn and develop as a creative.
