Dutch artist Nadya Bonten-Slenders creates beautiful illustrations, usually with one or more rats as the center point, though every now and then she branches out to hamsters, cats, pandas and sometimes even people. Nadya has been running her own illustration business for a couple of years now.
Over the years she has developed a style that is truly her own; her illustrations are always cute as a button and have an ethereal and delicate air about them. Nadya is a self-taught artist and thus built her career on experience only, making sure to always improve her craft. Nadya also illustrates children’s books.
In 2013 she started a 365-day illustration challenge. For the duration of one year she made and published one illustration per day. This really shaped and improved her drawing style and creativity.
