Johanna Koelman Tekeningen van beer en uil

I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. I always wanted to become an artist, but apparently I had to walk a different path, for when I was a girl of 17, I found myself already working in an advertising agency. That was a long time ago. Then art directors still had to make their own sketches and I was drawing every single day. Loved it!

And now a few years later, I still draw every day. The animals and birds around the Zwet (the lake behind my house) is my biggest source of inspiration

My daily drawings are a way to tune in to the day. How do I feel? How is the world doing? And how are you?! I will always try to touch you in a way, to make you smile, to comfort you or to help you to check for yourself…how am I today?

Since 2012 I put all my free hours, a lot of love and attention in my daily drawings. Drawings that I make and then selflessly share with the world.
