BIOGRAPHY AGNES

Agnes Loonstra (1987) is a freelance illustrator currently living in Utrecht, the Netherlands. She has drawn for a large variety of clients since 2012 in her studio in ‘de Vechtclub XL’; a hotspot for designers in Utrecht.

Throughout her wide range of work – from editorial illustrations, birth announcement cards and murals to album covers, educational illustrations and animations – you will always be able to discern Agnes’ illustrations due to her recognizable distinctive drawing style.

In an often light-hearted, yet at times serious, manner, Agnes likes to focus on all those things in life that making living worthwhile. Through an atmospheric palette and an organised and playful style, she transforms any subject into a captivating image.

Besides her activities as an illustrator Agnes is also a musician. After her studies at the conservatory in Utrecht, she started working for music school ‘het Klooster’ as a singing teacher and a choir leader in 2008. She also sings in the nu-folk band ‘Wooden Soldiers’ and as a contra-alt in the ‘40s tribute act ‘Charmony’.
