Annabel Keijzer has been working as a independent illustrator and graphic designer since 2005. She works from her studio based in the center of Amsterdam (The Netherlands). After a study graphic design at Media College Amsterdam, she graduated from the University of the Arts Utrecht where she studied Illustration.

She loves to draw with ink, brushes and pencils. She experiments with blocks, shapes and colors. She uses type as image.

The colorfulness in her work is important and spontaneity is an essential part of how she goes about her work.

Her first book ‘My Letter Friends' is the outcome of years sketching and tweaking. The book showcases her love for typography and illustration. Since the launch of this self published book, My Letter Friends have step by step started to conquer the world.
The books are featured at  Art Book Fairs and sold from Belgium, Japan: Tokyo, to USA: Los Angeles, New York, Portland Oregon. The book is loved by parents and children alike.

She currently working on a new book. The editions are limited, with the aim that they will be collected by book lovers.

Annabel  likes to use her illustrations to create large, indoor murals, to smaler things like coffee cup drawings.

The books are printed and bonded in the Netherlands.
