Amsterdam based artist, Martine Johanna was born and raised in the Netherlands. Martine started to draw and paint after working as a fashion designer. Her amazing illustrations depict an almost dark, fairy tale. I absolutely love her technique of drawing and using pastel on wood. Check out all of her paintings and illustrations on her website, here. And if you are in the area, be sure to attend her group show in June and July at the gallery Fontana Fortura in Amsterdam.
