Biography of Marjolein Hund, illustrator of the non-fiction children's picture books "Want To Know. Knights", "Want to Know. Princess" and more published by Clavis Publishing, New York.


Marjolein Hund

Marjolein Hund (1977) grew up in Monnickendam. As a child she was always drawing, painting, pasting and cutting. She was a real child of the outdoors and was very creative: she made her own toys with the materials she found on the street. She talked to trees, gave names to plants and let them all play a part in her fantasy world. When she was young, she won several colouring competitions and from early on she knew she wanted to ‘do something with drawing’. Currently, she lives in Amsterdam with her husband and two children.

Marjolein attended the School of Graphic Design in Amsterdam and the Arts College in Utrecht. In January 2004 she graduated with honours as Bachelor Design, Illustration. Ever since she works as a freelance illustrator for several publishing houses and other organizations, and specializes in children’s books and educational artwork.

‘The best thing about illustrating is you can make your own fantasy world come true. Especially with children’s books. Everything is possible, animals can talk, green people can walk through the streets with houses made from candy, letters turn into people and pictures tell their own story. In short, nothing is unthinkable in an illustrator’s world. Helping children to fantasize, or help them read, mourn and support them in any other way is great. Illustrations serve a goal. Each new story is challenging, each new book is different and no illustration is finished, which makes it all so exiting!’
