I was born & raised in Spakenburg, a picturesque fishermansvillage in the Netherlands. I moved to Amsterdam when I started studying Fashion&Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and never really left.
I started my career off in fashion styling but slowly gravitated towards illustration, which always really was my true passion. Mid 2016 I started illustrating under my pseudonym this is -Gary.
My work is recognizable by it’s flowy but simple lines and bold colour usage. I create my work with a combination of fineliners on paper and Adobe illustrator.
As part of the LGBTQA+ community & a body- & sex positive person, I love to get involved in projects concerning those matters.
