Tamara Houtveen

Hi, my name is Tamara Houtveen

I am a surface pattern designer and illustrator from Amersfoort, the Netherlands. I love to design happy, colorful patterns and illustrations that enrich our daily lives. My work appears on fabric, wrapping paper, decorations, children’s books, greeting cards and more.

I find a lot of inspiration for my illustrations in nature, botanical gardens, vintage graphics & books, and museums. My favorite subjects to draw are animals and flowers. I like to work digital with the use of handmade textures to give it a more personal look. Most of my patterns and illustrations are designed for children, but I’m always open for other projects and commissions.

What can I do for you?

I offer a wide variety of ready-to-license patterns and illustrations. Besides licensing you can also hire me to design a custom-made pattern or illustration. I really enjoy the process and aim to help you to create the best possible, unique product. I’m easy to work with, reliable and I understand all the technical terms.

I love to promote the products that have been manufactured by my clients, helping you in your mission to sell. You can commission me for any kind of project. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.
