Carolien Westermann

Biography of Carolien Westermann, illustrator of the children's picture book "The Only Way I Can" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.


Carolien Westermann

In childhood already it was Carolien Westermann’s biggest wish: becoming a children books illustrator. The dream came true when Clavis published her first books: Rafelijntje in 2013 and The only way I can in 2016. In 2015 appeared her self-published book Beastly Capitals.

Since finishing her illustration studies at the Utrecht School of the arts, Carolien (1988) works as a freelance illustrator. Illustrating children books is only part of her daily occupation: she also works for magazines (VPRO, PLUS magazine).

Her work is narrative and poetic and often there is a touch of humor.
