What usually starts as a rough, digital pencil sketch, for Nieke Stegerman turns into an illustration filled with texture, detail and storytelling. Born and based in Maastricht, Netherlands, Nieke enjoys visualizing a vague and abstract idea and shaping it into the colorful narrative. Stegerman’s focus on a simplified, conceptual approach to creating illustration allows her to draw bold, graphic images with impact. Committed to her craft, today Nieke decides to spread her creative wings further afield, working abroad and on the Moon. Being in nature, watching tv-shows and travelling to space is always to be in her to-do list.
Produced by human beings, it does not occure by chance, it is more like a copy of something natural. How wonderful is the technology! It has a kind face which covers a cold and hard metal. Surreal, isn’t it? But I believe in fairy-tales.
