“II still find it amazing that you can create your very own world with illustrations.”
As a child, Linde Faas often disappeared between the stacks of drawings in her room. Back then, she saw drawing as something for herself and never realised that one day she’d be able to turn her hobby into a career. In fact, she was more set on becoming an explorer.
Today, Linde is an illustrator who is in demand the world over. She’s also been fortunate enough to do a little exploring, however, because her boyfriend works for a few months each year in the north of Norway. In addition to fjords, it’s the sort of place where a traffic jam can be caused by a stray moose! That means Linde really can call herself an explorer as well as an illustrator and an artist.
“I still find it amazing that you can create your very own world with illustrations and take others on an adventure. It’s wonderful to see a new world coming to life on paper,” Linde says. Her work can be seen in several different children’s books that she’s collaborated on with several different authors.
