Marjoke Henrichs

I am a theatre designer and artist, originally from The Netherlands. In the past I have designed extensive theatre sets and painted large canvasses. On the MA I reduced the scale, which I could do at my desk! In my drawings I use a combination of gouache, coloured pencil, collage and Indian ink. I like to use line in a spontaneous way to create energy and movement in my characters.

I love drawing from observation and am always carrying a sketchbook with me. I get my inspiration for my stories from everyday life, what I see or hear around me, about friendship, play and being yourself. This has resulted in exploring what dogs would do on scooters, crocodile friendships and dealing with an obstinate rabbit.
