About me

Hi, my name is Nanda van Dijk and I would be honored to help you strengthen your drawing skills! 

I started drawing when I was a little kid, and I now work as a freelance illustrator and animator for commercials and feature films. Please visit the portfolio tap to see some of my animation and storyboard work.


Anime and Manga have always been a big inspiration for me, especially when I was drawing as a teenager. I was a big fan of Card Capture Sakura, Ranma ½ and all the movies by studio Ghibli. 

The past two years, I've also worked at the Sint Joost school of Art as an Animation and Illustration teacher. I have helped many students elevate their drawing skills, and I am confident that I can teach you a couple of tricks as well!
