Biography of Eefje Kuijl, illustrator of the children's picture books "Benji and te Giant Kite" and "Benji and the 24 Pound Banana Squash" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.
Eefje Kuijl (Breda, the Netherlands, 1978) studied Illustration at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (HKU University of the Arts). Since she graduated she works with pleasure for all kinds of commissioners: at the beginning mostly educational editing companies, lately more and more companies working on other fields, like editors of illustrated children books. Eefje specializes in illustrations for children.
She lives in Breda with her husband, son Guus, daughter Fien and dog Jip.
Eefje about her profession: “It is always a treat to work with colors and composition. Normally I draw everything directly by computer in Photoshop, using a Wacom pen and tablet. Sometimes I use photographed elements in my illustrations.”
