Surface pattern designer and product illustrator Loes van Oosten lives near the beach of The Hague, in the Netherlands. With a keen eye for beauty, form and detail, she is open and observant to everything around her. In her artwork she tries to capture the beauty of nature and every day life. Her creativity is sparked by seemingly engineerd structures in nature and various art styles like the Art Nouveau and Wiener Werkstätte. Loes makes surface pattern designs and product illustrations for any surface.
Her signature style is bold, bright and graphic with a side of playfulness. The graphic nature and texture in her work comes from the various artisanal techniques that she uses, like printing handmade stamps and block prints.. With her digital work she strives to stay as close to the handmade original as possible.
